In addition to Far Cry 2, Clint Hocking has worked on Splinter Cell and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. As for Kim Swift, her most recent work was creative director at Airtight Games on Quantum Conundrum and Soul Fjord.

In addition, the game comes bundled with the $39.99 Amazon controller along with 1000 Amazon coins, which are worth $10.00.

Along with Sev Zero, Amazon Game Studios recently released a sneak peak into what we can expect next from the studio for the Fire TV.
