Seemingly out of nowhere, Humble Bundle announced today that it was acquired by media giant IGN. What this means for the future of the most popular game bundle website remains to be seen, but supposedly IGN won’t interfere too much with the management of Humble Bundle and they’ll let it run independently.
Excerpt from the statement by Jeffrey Rosen, Co-founder of Humble Bundle:
“Announcing our biggest bundle ever: Humble Bundle is proudly joining the IGN family! We will continue to bring you all of our humble products, but with more resources and help from IGN.
We chose IGN because they really understand our vision, share our passion for games, and believe in our mission to promote awesome digital content while helping charity. I can’t think of a better partner than IGN to help Humble Bundle continue our quest.
We will be working harder than ever to bring you the best gaming bundles, book bundles, and store sales, while nurturing the Humble Monthly and our new publishing initiative. We will keep our own office, culture, and amazing team with IGN helping us further our plans. We will raise even more money for charity.”
