Amazon still focuses on video games for new CEO Andy Jassy
Andy Jassy, the new CEO of Amazon, said that his company is still relying heavily on video games “some businesses take years to establish themselves”.
Yesterday Jezz Bezos, Amazon’s longtime CEO, announced that he will soon step back and leave his post to Andy Jassy. One of the things the new Amazon CEO he said is that his company, despite the many difficulties, still focuses a lot on video games. According to him, in fact, “some businesses take years to establish themselves”.
In recent days, in fact, rumors had come that Amazon’s landing in the video game market failed due to mismanagement. The main defendant, therefore, was Mike Frazzini, the head of Amazon Game Studios. According to Jassy, however, that report was the result of exaggerations and inaccuracies, although there were obviously errors.
According to the new CEO, in fact, “some businesses take off after a year, others take several years. Although we have not yet had success with Amazon Game Studios I am convinced that by insisting we will have it. “
Until now, Andy Jassy was the head of Amazon’s cloud computing division and therefore was also the head of Frazzini. Admitting his failure, therefore, would have been like admitting his own. Not exactly what is expected as a first statement from the CEO of a company like Amazon.
We remind you that Amazon Game Studios are working on New World, while they have published and already closed Crucible.
