Scoop: Firewatch developer Campo Santo has been purchased... by Valve
Firewatch sold over 1 millions copies. That's a financial windfall for a small team. Most interesting part of this…
This is big. Valve wouldn’t be on this mad acquisition spree if they weren’t ready to get back to the business of m…
nani the fuck
Great developer, looking forward to many great games from them
So weird seeing Valve making moves again. If HL3 is actually coming out (big if) then they gotta release it like Be…
My two true passions
At this point I don't know how I feel about Valve buying any game developer. It seems like being bought by EA excep…
HALF LIFE 3 HERE WE COME
they might have mcfreaking WHAT HOLY
RIP Campo Santo, they'll never produce games again.
I can't wait for Campo Santo to make absolutely nothing in the future
Ils vont leur faire développer Poker Night At The Inventory 3 vous allez voir
I guess that means we’ll never get a 3rd game by campo Santo.
“Campo Santo (Firewatch) has been acquired by a most unlikely suitor—Valve, a digital store operator that once made…
Holy crap. Congrats.
And they never released a game again
Finally, with Valve's resources, Idle Thumbs will be able to catch up on their postcard back log
Half Life 3 a game by Campo Santo
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Grats to the @camposanto folks!
i wonder how much back and forth there was based on “valve hasn’t made a substantial game in almost a decade”
hope y'all didn't like making games all that much
Interesting move. As long as the DNA remains intact it could be onwards and upwards for Campo Santo.
Inb4 Campo Santo never releases another game 😏
Y’all wanted a single player Valve game and the monkey needs its paw back.
Yowza. Well, congrats on the Hawaiian retreat, at least!
I am completely blindsided by this
Cool! More Dota skins!
I'd rather they be purchased by a company that makes video games
I guess Valve is going to be making games again
Important if true……. (it’s true)
Holy shit! Amazing! Congrats @camposanto!
Oh I don't feel good about this...
This is huge. I love that team’s work.
Ah oh wow.
olvidaos de que firewatch sea algún día una trilogía
huh
I mean you have to WATCH the FIRE to make the STEAM go through the VALVE so it makes sense.
Ich bin... sehr überrascht von dieser Meldung. Ein wirklich interessanter Kauf!
Noooooooooooooooo

This could be really good news? Question mark?
Firewatch is actually a prequel to Left 4 Dead. When the main character of that game gets back to the city, he find…

Damn suxks that's we'll never get another campo santo game...

This is like if one of the best living writers suddenly had VISA dictating the topic and scope of their next book.…
Wow, congrats to @camposanto! Definitely look forward to seeing what comes next (and more games from Valve!).
En serio, Valve lleva un tiempo haciendo cosas muy raras. Gabe, espero que esto lleve de algún modo a Half life 3 o…

Looks like Valve is getting back into single player at last.

Firewatch Episode 3 confirmed
it’s a trap!
HAHA WELP WE'RE NEVER GETTING IN THE VALLEY OF THE GODS NOW
Now THAT is unexpected. Is this how Valve gets back into the game making business?
finally, video games by that valve guy
No! We'll never see another game from them again! 😂😂 Seriously though good acquisition on Valve's part, they can ut…
Idk how to feel about this
Lmao guess there’s only gonna be one sequel
half life 3 will now be a walking simulator
Wow! Cool! Congrats to those guys and I hope this means they continue to make games.
Super jealous of the guys and girls working at this studio. At least Valve will have a new game coming out soon.
Whoa, that's pretty huge. Just hope their autonomy lasts.
Hostia tú
What the whaaa?
lol
Valve: We're making games again. Internet: Yeah, right. Valve: We are. Look 👇
The questions now: Will they ever release a game now that they are part of Valve? Do The work on Valve time now?…
Ho-ly shit...! Congrats to everyone at @camposanto! :D
In an unprecedented move, it looks like Valve might be branching out into game development.
Innnnnteeeerrreesssttttiinnngggggggg...
What does it all mean man!
Uh oh......don't get too hyped Travis...just stay CALM...
welp. RIP Firewatch 2.
Somehow this doesn’t seem like good news.
Wait whaaaaa ?
Valve will continue making games...Through other talented studios, which hey, things could be worse?
Guess we know who is making Half Life 3 😂
I love Firewatch, and I am not really excited with this news. Let us hope @camposanto releases another game soon an…
Wow. Valve buys Campo Santo.
Don't know what to say about this
So...@pewdiepie isn't allowed to play any steam game anymore? 🤔
👀👀👀
Oh boy that’s bad fucking news
WHAT. WHAT. WHAT.
What the heck?
?????????????????????????
Get ready for Firewatch 2: The Game Store, and it’s really just a store that sells other games and doesn’t actually…
Well, that came out of nowhere. 😳
Well okay then
Description of Valve as a digital store operator that once made video games makes me feel sad but it is also accura…
Tant que In The Valley of the Gods reste en développement je suppose que tout va bien. Par contre, pourquoi ?
@KyleBosman @EasyAllies
Awesome. This pleases me.
ugh god please no
finally somebody will make half life 3 people walking in a forest
BREAKING NEWS ON A SATURDAY?!? WHOA CRAZY CRAZY

HOLY FUCK! Huge if true :O I mean, I guess Valve went that via for developing story driven games funded by them w…
Oh wow
Oh? You don't say...
I'm everybody in the comments earnestly saying "i wish it was microsoft"
Congratulations to Campo Santo for making Firewatch 2 and then never make a video game ever again.
@NicolasVerge 👇
2019 is the year vr becomes good
I... don’t like this?
Ok, oq será que isso pode gerar?
A bit like being adopted by someone who refuses to interact with children
@Huevito_Alarcon WEON
is this what valve means when they say they're still making games
What’s campo santo been working on for two years?
Half Life 3 confirmed? (someone had to say it)
WHAAAAT???
I legit thought Campo Santo was a person
what the fuck
What in God's name
Guess that means we ain't getting any more games by these guys lol
Half Life 3 confirmé !!!!! (Et sera manifestement un simulateur de marche).
Congrats @vanaman
since when does Valve need game devs???
I really have no words. I'm kind of sad I guess. Good luck to you all.
👀👀👀
hmm. hopefully this doesn’t end poorly?
Lol Half Life 3 confirmed.
Forget about Firewatch 3.
Ugh. I mean good for them if that keeps them in business but now I worry about their games not making it to the Swi…

@ForgetAmnesia here's mine:
Where there's steam there's fire?
well fuck :(
La véritable nouvelle, c'est que Valve veut continuer à faire des jeux.
NNNNNNNÃÃÃÃÃOOOOOO
This is pretty big news! Does this mean Campo Santo will make the next L4D a walking simulator!??
idk... idk how to feel about this
god fucking damn it is nOTHING SACRED
Will @idlethumbs be podcasting from a mansion now?
Bonne nouvelle pour le coup, Valve s'intéresse de nouveau au Software ! ✌🏻
When your writers leave?
I like the potential here.
My theory on this is that Valve now has a dedicated "games" team to develop for them while they keep focusing on wh…

Oh wow. Valve buying a new developer. I liked Firewatch when I played it two years ago.
Great... Maybe they'll make... um. What was that game Valve made a long time ago? Do they even make games?
...huh. Okay, so this means that Valve will be releasing a new single-player game next year. Technically.
Con hacer juegos se referían a comprar gente que los hace. Aunque han hecho la mejor compra, dicho sea de paso.…
Pero siguen sin desarrollar juegos.
Listed in 'most random news of the year' file
Firewatch VR 😉
In The Valley of Gods parecia tão legal
And that's probably the last we'll ever hear of this studio in terms of game development.
Ta explicado agora o "voltamos a fazer single-player galera"
Firewatch... that's a 3 syllable word. Half-Life 3 confirmed!
Either valve is about to start making actual games again or this is the last we've heard of Campo Santo
Wait what?!
Intéressant ça, Valve qui rachète le développeur de Firewatch.
Not sure how I feel about this...
What does this even mean...
bem, acho que o Gabe tava falando a verdade
QUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

*obligatory Half Life 3 joke*
Important if true. Also, Campo Santo are cool great and I'm super excited.
WHY? Now In The Valley of Gods will never be released

Valve finally announces a new video game: whatever that Egypt one Campo Santo's working on.
Well this is terrible news. Valve is a cancer on the video game industry.
This news makes me super-nervous, honestly, because as we all know Valve doesn't make video games any more...
@andreaszecher Ok with me if it's Campo Santo 🔥🕓🤘

Valve bought Campo Santo, whoa
