Humble Bundle Bought By IGN!

Last updated on October 17th, 2017

Digital video game storefront, Humble Bundle announced today in a blog post, that the company is now acquired by gaming and entertainment giant, IGN.

Humble Bundle – IGN Acquisition!

In the blog post, CEO and Co-founder Jeffrey Rosen, broke the news about the acquisition. And assures the community and everyone else that they’ll still be operating independently with their team intact, and hopes that resources from IGN will boost their altruistic vision.

“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.” said Rosen.

Details of the arrangement, such as for how much Humble Bundle was procured for, were not revealed. However, IGN’s executive VP Mitch Galbraith, in a conversation with Gamasutra  reinforces their pact.

 “The idea is just to feed them with the resources they need to keep doing what they’re doing.” says Galbraith “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it”

Humble Bundle began by offering collections of indie games for a price that was determined by the customer, with a portion of the proceeds being donated to charity. Since its conception, the company has achieved remarkable success with their operations.

“thanks to the generosity of over 10 million customers, we’ve now raised $106 million for charity. We are incredibly proud of this figure, of our team, and the Humble community which got us here.” Rosen states.

In more Humble Bundle stuff, for just $12 you can be the proud owner of three Bethesda titles including: Elder Scrolls Online,  TES: Legends  as well as Quake Champions  and much more!

    I don’t get it. Is the article implying Humbling Bundle is losing money? If that’s the case, then why would IGN buy them, but not change anything?

    This is weird.

    What surprises me is that they say they’re not going to do anything different, and are just giving Humble bundle money to support them. By the sound of it, it doesn’t seem like Humble Bundle was doing poorly, but that they wanted more money and resources, which kind of sounds shady to me given they went to IGN.

    What they said makes little to no sense. On one hand it’s understandable that HB may want more resources and IGN can provide them with very heavy front-end advertisement. But obviously IGN isn’t gonna do this out of the goodness of their heart, so they will expect to recoup their investment.

    It may continue running as it is for a while, but I think eventually, like all things, it will change / adapt to match market forces and meet whatever expectations were set forth.
