Star Citizen Switching To Amazon's Lumberyard Game Engine

Chris Roberts has announced that both Star Citizen and Squadron 42 have been moved over to Amazon's Lumberyard game engine. Hopefully this doesn't set the game back even further than it already is.

"We’ve been working with Amazon for more than a year, as we have been looking for a technology leader to partner with for the long term future of Star Citizen and Squadron 42," said Chris Roberts, CIG’s CEO and creative director. "Lumberyard provides ground breaking technology features for online games, including deep back-end cloud integration on AWS and its social component with Twitch that enables us to easily and instantly connect to millions of global gamers. Because we share a common technical vision, it has been a very smooth and easy transition to Lumberyard. In fact, we are excited to announce that our just released 2.6 Alpha update for Star Citizen is running on Lumberyard and AWS."
