Humble Bundle Gets Owned by IGN

Humble Bundle has been owned by gaming website IGN, by which we mean that IGN is now the owner of Humble Bundle. It will take helm of one of the top gaming charities, whose bundles have not just supplied gamers with endless piles of cheap fun, but have also supplied charities to the tune of over $100 million.

“If it’s not broken, don’t fix it,” said Galbraith, who explained that IGN started looking to make a deal like this nearly a year ago. “The idea is just to feed them with the resources they need to keep doing what they’re doing.”

The news has no doubt called into question the ethics of having a company that reviews games be directly connected to a store that could sell those games, but IGN has stated that the two entities will remain entirely independent.

(Our thoughts: To the dismay of Humble Bundle’s finance department, IGN pushed the contribution slider 100% toward giving the money to charity. This news also comes alongside the announcement that IGN has once again not acquired MMO Fallout)
