Campo Santo has revealed that it has been acquired by Valve. The studio, which is known for developing the critically-acclaimed Firewatch, made the announcement in a recent blog post detailing its journey leading up to joining Valve. You can rest assured that Campo Santo is still working on completing its current projects, which include a Nintendo Switch version of Firewatch. Read on below for a few excerpts from the aforementioned post:
If you’re the type of person who gives two flips about this news, we can elaborate a little bit on this big decision. First, we really like making video games. Furthermore, and perhaps more accurately, we really like making and producing entertainment. From the day-to-day production of our last game, Firewatch, to the way we run the company, make merchandise, meet players at expos and shows, send out a quarterly literary journal, throw open-to-the-public game demos in the middle of an artificial forest—all of it is geared towards surprising, delighting, and entertaining the customers who have shared in our success.
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.
Yes, we’re still making In the Valley of Gods (as a Valve game!); yes, we’ll still support Firewatch; and yes, we’ll still produce The Quarterly Review and our regular blog content. Thanks so much for your interest in our games and we’ll see you in Washington. Cheers.
They do know that Valve isn’t very tolerant to devs pushing agendas like a Liberal Agenda…. so they better stay Neutral

So if their games will eventually be exclusive to Steam, I wonder if I should get Firewatch on Steam instead of PS4 now. Decisions, decisions.
Is it on PS4? I’ve been wanting to play but my PC needs a better graphics card to run FW at optimal levels, but since I picked up a PS4 now…
Yeah. Got it on my wishlist on their website for PlayStation Store. They even got a dynamic theme for it.
