Gabe Newell: Valve would rather “disintegrate” than getting bought out

Noble thoughts from Gabe Newell.

Posted By | On 10th, Sep. 2012

It looks like Valve isn’t interested in getting bought out by a larger company. They are a private company, not public, so that makes them easier to work without any shareholder pressure or facing hostile takeovers, but still Valve are cautious, boss Gabe Newell says.

“It’s way more likely we would head in that direction than say, ‘Let’s find some giant company that wants to cash us out and wait two or three years to have our employment agreements terminate,’” Newell said in an interview with NYT.

Reading this brings a tear to my eye, I dunno why. Maybe I like Valve and what they do, their principles and a legend like Gabe Newell handling the company. This is purely my personal opinion though. Business is business and people learn that the hard way.
