How long until Valve tries to buy this/make their own version?

Geez... This thing snowballed out of control. I'm happy for the devs, I guess. I tried playing it solo but didn't really enjoy it much, mostly just a very nerve wracking experience. I'd like to give it another shot tho so I'll probably hop into the GAF crew for the game soon.

I don't think they need to

They've already made around 100 million dollars from this game in revenue

Plus they take a cut of every cosmetic item sold on the workshop.

Indeed, and those that aren't bots are usually on their third or fourth steam account and copy of the game because the devs banned them for using the car horn.

Single maps confirmed the key to success assuming both games still have single maps. I think pubg is getting more

Tencent, Microsoft and Valve, all should buy this according to some or another GAF user
I think the game should be fine and Bluehole is fine. They don't need to be bought out and they don't want to be bought out

They are probably already working on something like it.

It would actually be a great way to to introduce a new version of Source since Half-Life is pretty much dead.

Same. I've watched giant bomb play it, but I really struggle to see the magic behind it.

The numbers will probably keep on growing, there is nothing on PC that could compete with it right now (poor Lawbreakers).

Not until Destiny 2/ COD/ Battlefront 2 wombo combo in late October/ November.

This game is a triumph for multiple reasons and multiple people. A multiplayer shooter from a smaller virtually unknown studio, a game with a very weird non-franchise name, a game with no massive marketing campaign has managed to destroy other huge multiplayer titles and post some shocking concurrent player numbers.

It's also a triumph for the developer, Valve and PC gaming. For the developer it's self-explanatory, for Valve it's a huge win to have the current gaming sensation on Steam and for PC gaming it brought it a lot of new gamers to the platform. Amazing.
