Firewatch Developers Campo Santo Purchased by Valve

Development for In the Valley of the Gods will continue.

Firewatch and In the Valley of the Gods developers Campo Santo has been purchased by Valve. Campo Santo says that this deal does not affect the development of In the Valley of the Gods, Firewatch, or Campo Santo's original blog content.

Campo Santo announced the news on its website today writing, "In Valve we found a group of folks who, to their core, feel the same way about the work that they do (this, you may be surprised to learn, doesn't happen every day). In us, they found a group with unique experience and valuable, diverse perspectives. It quickly became an obvious match."

Campo Santo will be relocating from San Francisco, CA to Bellevue, Washington where Valve is headquartered. Kotaku reports that Campo Santo is not being absorbed into Valve, and its employees will still be working on their current projects rather than re-assigned to other Valve projects.

Campo Santo is currently working on In the Valley of the Gods, another narrative-focused adventure game first revealed at last year's Game Awards. Firewatch was also recently announced for the Nintendo Switch. No word yet on what this means for the planned Firewatch film or the studio's partnership with film studio Good Universe.

We have reached out to Campo Santo for statements regarding the latter and are awaiting responses.
