What you need to know
- Firewatch developer Campo Santo was acquired by Valve in 2018.
- Its expected next game, In The Valley of Gods, has been put on hold by Valve.
- Campo Santo is focusing on Half-Life: Alyx and other projects for Valve instead.
Campo Santo's In The Valley of Gods has been put on hold while the former indie developer, now working under Valve, is focusing on other projects for the company. Notably, Valve recently announced Half-Life: Alyx, a dedicated VR game set in the Half-Life universe.
Judging from a statement by Camp Santo founder co-founder Jake Rodkin made to Polygon, Valve's infamous "work on what you want" culture is true, and much of the In The Valley of Gods team moved to other projects as they saw fit.
In The Valley of Gods is a single-player adventure game set in Egypt that was supposed to release sometime this year, but the new release date is now unknown. Half-Life: Alyx is set to drop in March 2020.
