"Jeff and I are working on indie games again," Semple told IGN. "We were working for Valve in a remote office in San Mateo. It turned out that there weren't many benefits for either side in that arrangement. Valve was super cool about it and is letting us continue to work on our game, and is also giving us the office."


That's the sort of thing that would almost never happen with a publicly traded company. There's too much bureaucracy for that. If it was EA they would have to go to court and spend money to get to a point where they could write up a long contract describing the annulment of the former agreement to work together (etc etc etc.) and that's if they didn't decide to liquidate all the assets and leave the two people high and dry.
