Just when you thought the Amazon HQ2 sweepstakes couldn't get crazier, it did.

According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, e-commerce giant Amazon may split its second headquarters between two cities.

The retailer previously announced a planned investment of $5 billion and 50,000 jobs for the second headquarters.

A group of developers has already purchased a site in Dallas.

While Amazon's rise has been applauded by many, it has not been without local critics in Seattle who say the influx of mostly well-heeled tech workers caused housing prices to skyrocket, clogged the streets with traffic and changed the city for the worse.

The long-awaited decision has yet to be made, but the Journal, citing a person familiar with the decision making process, reported that the internet retail titan will choose two locations for their newest headquarters. This plan will split employees between the two headquarters at 25,000 each.

Asked to comment on the weekend's reports, City Hall spokesman Adam Collins said, "As fun as it is to speculate on rumors, we're not playing that parlor game".

The source said that the winning cities have not been selected but The Journal reported Sunday that Amazon was in final discussions with Northern Virginia, Dallas, and New York City. However, the company is not exactly denying the report's accuracy. "HQ2 and HQ2.1? Or HQ2A and HQ2B?" "If Amazon ends up splitting its expansion into mini HQs, that is called.opening satellite offices, which scarcely deserves the buckets of ink spilled so far", said Nick Wingfield of The Information.
