The company that takes over might sound quite familiar to the readers.
The announcement came on the Humble Blog that the site, which was founded in 2010, offering PC (and sometimes console) games in bundles for low costs, giving part of the revenue to charity, is now acquired by another company. Its name is IGN Entertainment. Yep, you read that right: IGN bought Humble Bundle!
Jeffrey Rosen, co-founder of Humble, says that IGN will help the company to „promote awesome digital content while helping charity.” „We chose IGN because they understand our vision, share our passion for games, and believe in our mission,” he said.
On Gamasutra, we read that IGN doesn’t want to change how Humble Bundle and Humble Store works. IGN‘s executive vice president, Mitch Galbraith follows the „if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” approach. „The idea is just to feed them with the resources they need to keep doing what they’re doing,” he said.
Hopefully, we won’t be seeing any negative changes!
