"Montreal’s rich vein of creative talent will be a valuable asset," said Christoph Hartmann, vice president of Amazon Games, in a press release.

While Amazon might not be known for developing video games, the company has dipped its toes into the industry with projects such as the upcoming MMO New World and Pac-Man Live Studio. 

With plenty of new, unannounced games in the works, Amazon says that "the Montreal studio expands [its] commitment to developing games that offer bold new play experiences and foster community inside and outside of the games themselves."

There are plenty of jobs already available in positions like game developer and conceptual artist.
