Valve acquires Firewatch studio Campo Santo

Valve acquires Firewatch studio Campo Santo

"In us, they found a group with unique experience and valuable, diverse perspectives", said Campo Santo on its official blog.

It's worth noting that Campo Santo makes no mention of a buyout or acquisition by Valve, however.

Campo Santo, makers of a brilliant game called Firewatch, has just been snapped up by Valve, though the details of the deal now under wraps, as Valve operates as a private company.

Describing the endeavor, Campo Santo said it was surprised to find that its work ethic of "surprising, delighting, and entertaining the customers" was very much alike to how Valve functions, adding "It quickly became an obvious match". They were quick to assure readers that all 12 of their employees are staying on through the switch and that they will continue work on their upcoming title In The Valley of Gods.

Former game developer and current PC game platform arbiter Valve has a pretty solid history when it comes to making video games. However, Valve is also known to have created several games, arguably one of the most popular of which is Dota 2, or Defense of the Ancients.

Second, while visiting IGN's headquarters in early 2015 to talk about Firewatch, we came across an undelivered 2011 Game of the Year Award for Portal 2.

We're now told that Campo Santo has been acquired by Valve, but that we shouldn't expect to see many noteworthy changes because of the move.

However, throughout recent months, Valve has made publicly clear that it wants to begin developing more games.

Although its focus appears to be on Steam and maintaining its current games, Valve recently unveiled Dota digital card game Artifact, and is now working on three "full" VR titles.
