The announcement explained that this agreement came after several "long conversations" and eventuated into a mutually beneficial decision. "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."

 

The team behind Firewatch is currently on their way to relocating at Valve's Bellevue Washington HQ, where they will continue working on In the Valley of Gods. "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." If you are interested in reading the full blogpost check out the official Campo Santo website here.
