The popular game Firewatch is celebrating its anniversary for the fifth time. Back in 2016, a fair amount of people were excited to play. And developers were excited to show them the results of their hard work. They had also released it for the Nintendo Switch two years after the initial release. Now that the game is five years old, developers wanted to celebrate with fans.
Firewatch Developers Celebrate Anniversary
Firewatch developers were excited to celebrate the fifth anniversary. But they didn’t just want to share a simple anniversary message. It may not be new content, but fans are sure to appreciate it. Developer Campo Santo shared their sentiments with a tweet:
It is certainly a treat for fans to see conceptual artwork. But it’s not typically a regular occurrence, even on anniversaries. Most developers add any concept to a special edition of a game. It seems, though, Campo Santo felt longtime fans deserved to see the art that gave birth to Firewatch. Also, they shared something else. Players may not have been aware, but Campo Santo also shared an easter egg from the Switch version of the game.
