Amazon, known more for its online retail portal than video games, has recently purchased Double Helix Games. You’ll remember them developing Killer Instinct on Xbox One as well as handling the 2014 reboot of Strider along with Capcom. Needless to say, we’re as perplexed by this development as you are.

In a statement to TechCrunch, it was stated that, “Amazon has acquired Double Helix as part of our ongoing commitment to build innovate games for customers.”

As of now, the deal includes employees and various intellectual properties though the exact financial deals are still unknown. Double Helix will continue to support its current projects and all of its staff will continue from their current office location. Interestingly, Double Helix is located in Irvine, California – the same location as Amazon Game Studios, which is working Android games for its upcoming games device.

Currently, Double Helix are busy with Strider, which releases later this year for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and PC.
