Killer Instinct and Strider developer purchased by e-commerce company

It's been known that Amazon has had its eye on diversifying into the gaming space. Not just from a sales standpoint, but for publishing and producing its own unique titles. And now, the mega online retailer has made its first major move to that goal by purchasing independent developer Double Helix Games.

In a statement just after the news broke, Amazon provided some insight into the deal: "Amazon has acquired Double Helix as part of our ongoing commitment to build innovative games for customers."

Founded in 2007, Double Helix Games has made some notable titles from a variety of different franchises -- such as Silent Hill: Homecoming, Front Mission Evolved, and most recently its work on the well-received Killer Instinct reboot.

With Strider still on the way, its unclear what the future holds for Double Helix. Stay tuned to Destructoid for more information as it develops.
