Those looking forward to Camp Santo’s next game, In the Valley of the Gods, will have to wait much longer. Confirmed back in 2017 the game has been put on hold so the developer can work on other projects.

In a message given to Polygon, Campo Santo co-founder Jake Rodkin said that In the Valley of Gods has now been put “on hold.”Here’s the full statement from Rodkin regarding the status of In the Valley of Gods:

To fans looking forward to In the Valley of Gods, it’s probably clear that the optimistic “2019” at the end of the announcement trailer isn’t going to be accurate. In the end, Valve Time makes fools of us all. But yes, developers from the former Campo Santo team have joined other projects at Valve, including Half-Life: Alyx. As you can imagine, our experience in the first-person adventure genre is pretty relevant. You hear a lot about how at Valve you can work on what you want. It turns out that’s true, and there’s a lot of work available. As we integrated ourselves into Valve it became clear there was a lot of valuable work to be done on Half-Life: Alyx. Some of us starting lending a hand, and have since become full-time on the project as it approaches launch. Similarly, some ex-Campos are working on Dota Underlords, some are on Steam, and so on. So to answer your question as of today, In the Valley of Gods development is on hold—but it certainly feels like a project people can and may return to. And when that happens, we’ll find an exciting way to let fans know.

The game is not cancelled, just in developer limbo. Valve does have a history of doing this. With the recent announcement of Half-Life: Alyx being the next game in the acclaimed series that took over a decade to release.
