“We have been working for a while, but it takes a long time to make games, and we’re bringing a lot of Amazon practices to making games,” Frazzini added.

When it comes to cloud-based gaming, Amazon will have to compete with Microsoft and Google. Both of them already have their feet firmly planted in the space, Microsoft with Project xCloud and Google with Stadia.
