Anyone who's familiar with gaming, whether it be on PC or mobile, will know what a Humble Bundle is. IGN will help grow Humble Monthly as well, along with fostering the company's "new publishing initiative". To be clear, though, Humble Bundle has been acquired by Ziff Davis (IGN's owner) through IGN's division.

The charitable storefront Humble Bundle was purchased last week by pop culture website IGN, which itself is owned by media giant J2 Global.

However, a press release confirming the deal also noted that Humble will continue to operate independently in the wake of the acquisition, with no significant business or staffing changes. When our parents found out that our "big idea" was basically the honor system of pay-what-you-want plus charity, they braced themselves for the possibility that we might never move out. "We don't want to disrupt anything we're doing right already", added Graham. Since that first bundle, the store has raised more than $106 million for charity.

The announcement came via the Humble Mumble blog written by Humble Bundle CEO Jeffrey Rosen on Saturday.

Reactions on Twitter have been somewhat mixed, with some users citing a potential conflict of interest.
