Independent studio Campo Santo (Firewatch) has been acquired by a most unlikely suitor – Valve, a digital store operator that once made video games. Three people familiar with the news confirmed the purchase to Kotaku today.
Campo Santo, the minds behind Firewatch, are working on a first-person game that appears to take place in Egypt, based on a trailer that premiered tonight during The Game Awards. Called In The Valley of the Gods, the game is slated to drop in 2019.
The fallout from the latest drama involving Felix “Pewdiepie” Kjellberg and Campo Santo continues, with a fairly logical target finding itself in the firing line: Firewatch.
