It isn’t only bad news for Amazon’s gaming portfolio. After all, the decision to acquire Twitch was arguably a savvy move, even for a cool billion dollars. The streaming platform outplayed its most significant threat in years, Microsoft’s Mixer, and remains the dominant platform for streaming, even attracting celebrities and politicians.

In addition, Amazon’s Luna cloud gaming service has received a lot of positive attention, despite remaining in an early access, invitation-only program that started in late 2020.
