Industry Veteran Christoph Hartmann Joins Amazon Game Studios — Amazon Game Studios

We’re excited to share that Christoph Hartmann has joined Amazon Games as Vice President of Game Studios.

Odds are, you already know Christoph from his work. He has an incredible history in the game industry, most notably for the 20 years he spent at Take-Two as President and founder of 2K Games. He led teams that spawned some of the most loved franchises in gaming, from Borderlands, Bioshock, and Civilization, to NBA 2K and many others.

At Amazon, he’ll be leading our entire studio and marketing organization, including our teams in Seattle, Orange County, and San Diego. He’ll be jumping right in on games like New World and Crucible, plus a few surprises we’ll be sharing in the months ahead.

In his own words:

Gaming, today’s favorite form of entertainment in the world, is connecting hundreds of millions of people. Between the teams at AGS, the incredible tools and technology from AWS, the global communities of Twitch and Twitch Prime, and all of the other assets around Amazon, there are few companies in the world set up to take gaming to the next level. I am incredibly proud and honored to become part of Amazon’s highly talented and passionate group of people, to develop together hallmarks of gaming, bring amazing experiences to people all over the world, and build a gaming legacy for the years to come.”
