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.
