Valve buys Campo Santo, developer of Firewatch

Campo Santo, the minds behind Firewatch, are now a Valve-owned Studio. In the blog post, the devs have stated that they will be maintaining their jobs and will continue to work on its current project, "In the Valley of Gods", which is now just a PC only title. This merging comes after meeting the Valve employees, in whom Campo Santo found another group with a passion for making and producing entertainment, while Valve saw in them unique experience, as well as valuable and diverse perspectives. It quickly became an obvious match, ' said the company.

In a blog post by the developer, they have announced that Valve will be acquiring them.

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.

The thing that is interesting about the move is that Campo Santo appears to be one of those indie studios who could have continued on quite nicely without getting absorbed into a major publisher's stable. Ultimately, this acquisition is about letting Campo Santo continue doing what it does best with much less stress about keeping things afloat.

Messina will also be at the helm Sunday as San Antonio tries to stay alive and push the series to a fifth game Tuesday in Oakland. At the start of the playoffs, many people considered the Warriors to have a very challenging first-round matchup.

Valve hasn't published a new game since 2013's Dota 2, but that's all about to change in the very near future.

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.

It looks like Campo Santo's intriguing narrative adventure Firewatch left something of an impression on Valve. The project, which is called In the Valley of the Gods, is only slated for release "once it is done".
