Campo Santo, the studio that created adventure game Firewatch has been bought by Valve. In their official blog post, the small development team at Campo Santo announced that they will be joining Valve, and the acquisition by the digital store operator will not affect the current project that they’re working on.
Valve plans to leave Campo Santo intact as a team, instead of re-assigning its new resources into other projects. The studio will relocate to Seattle soon.
