Firewatch studio Campo Santo has been acquired by Valve.
As a result, the studio’s 12 employees will relocate from California to Bellevue, Washington, where they will continue production on In the Valley of Gods.
In an update on its official blog, Campo Santo said the culture at Valve was a good fit for its employees.
“In us, they found a group with unique experience and valuable, diverse perspectives. It quickly became an obvious match,” Campo Santo wrote.
“We had a series of long conversations with the people at Valve and everyone shared the satisfaction we take in working with people whose talents dwarf our own to make things we never thought possible.
“Both sides spoke about our values and how, when you get right down to it, we, as human beings, are hard-limited by the time we have left when it comes to making the things we care about and believe in.
“They asked us if we’d all be interested in coming up to Bellevue and doing that there and we said yes.”
Although its focus appears to be on Steam and maintaining its current games, Valve recently unveiled Dota digital card game Artifact, and is currently working on three "full" VR titles.
