Your Journey Begins Spring 2012

This is Jenova Chen from thatgamecompany. First of all I would like to thank you for your support during the closed beta for our upcoming game Journey. It was a great success!


For the past few months, we kept getting asked about Journey’s release date. Yes, we haven’t said anything about our release in a while mainly because we really couldn’t tell. And we don’t want to throw out a date that we are not sure about, and later disappoint our players.

Fortunately, the online beta went very well, and our continued playtests have given us great feedback on the work we have left to complete. While there is still a ton of care and polish needed, we can’t wait to finally deliver Journey, TGC’s take on an online adventure game.

Like all our games, Journey is an experiment. In the end, it’s what you think that matters. We are happy to announce Journey will be released Spring 2012, so you can experience the adventure for yourself.

  • Great. Can’t wait!

  • Very exciting. Been monitoring development progress of Journey for some time. Eagerly await the opportunity to play this game. Big fan of thatgamecompany.

  • Oh, well…I`ll just have to wait.
    This is the game I`m more interested abou; even among major companies.
    If it is for the bst result, then make sure time is on your side!

    Just hope there will be special content and disccount for PS+ and day one purchasers, as I`m definitely both!

  • Nice? 3+ years for PSN title…

  • nice !!!!!! really excited about Journey but where is Sorcery sony ? can you guys release a patch so i can play God of War 3 or Heavenly Sword with the Move ? i want to use my move a little bit more and not just for shooters

  • Please include secret areas in the game etc.. that gives a lot of replay.. thank you.

  • I liked Flow, I loved Flower, I will be in love with this game!

    thatgamecompany is quickly becoming a favorite developer of mine.

    I love their vision, and artistic brilliance!

    I can’t not wait for this game!

    Cloud for the PC was amazing as well!!!

  • To add, this company would be perfect for making a game for the Vita. And I am excited to see what they can do with the touch controls and/or AR!

  • Cant wait!!

  • OMG, I can’t wait for this game/experience !

  • Really looking forward to this game. It looks fantastic. I had a quick play of it at GAMEfest and i’m eager to play more :)

  • Awesome can’t wait to play the crap out of it all week!

  • well at least it’s a beta and not an early multiplayer demo, called a beta, 1 month before the game’s release

  • Very excited about this! I enjoyed the beta and look forward to the final version! =D

  • Thanks for the update, Jenova! I loved taking part in the closed beta, and I definitely cannot wait to finally play the final thing. Rather bummed that it won’t make it for this fall, nor winter, but it’s probably for the best (it won’t be lost under the clutter of games coming by year’s end, and more time to polish up the game!)

    Looking forward to it’s springtime release!

  • I hope this means Vita support is incoming!!!!

  • Finally a timeframe, a lil disappointed its so far out but hey its at least something. Any plans for an OPEN Beta? I havent been able to try this game at all yet.
    TGC will we ever see Cloud on psn? i’d really love to see that on here.

  • Can’t wait!

  • Disappointing. Vita support or I will be disappointed even more.

  • this game looks pretty cool.

  • omg i love that dev. thatgamecompany their name is funny how you guys made up that name? lol

  • a little depressed this isnt hitting before the holiday, but i will have so much to play anyway. Oh well. Looking forward to it no matter what! I wish I could afford a Vita…

  • THIS is my most anticipated game of 2012*, and it should be YOURS too!

    *previously ‘Most anticipated game of 2011’.

  • A game that looks that good and fun will be worth the wait!

    *sits impatiently*

  • For such a small game its taking forever. Hope I can affordable.

  • Damn I thought it would be in 2011. Alright Ill wait lol

  • demo please! :D

  • WTF? I was expecting this game to arrive sometime between fall and winter!

  • Any details of major changes occurring during the beta? I did say it in a previous post about Journey but…

    I really hope you all reconsider a party system for Journey plus a LIMITED voice chat feature. I don’t want to be able to talk to just anybody while playing Journey, just the users I’m directly playing with. Plus party systems allow friends and family to get together and enjoy fantastic experiences easier. Journey looks to be a big experience and one I hope I can take with friends and family, not just limited to my living room.

    To any extent, can’t wait to see Journey finally. I was hoping for a bit of an earlier release like in even December but a little more polish to something that promises to be a fantastic title doesn’t hurt.

    Not related to Journey here too but… Will PS Move or 3D support ever come to Flower? We know there was little talks of PS Move support before but not sure if anything ever came of that. Flower in 3D would be flat out amazing if the 3D is done right.

  • WTF? ANOTHER delay? Figures. You better improve the graphics, gameplay, and replay values! The sand doesn’t look beautful, it looks like S, it doesn’t flow together and it looks like every step in the sand has someone dropping a HUGE boulder into water. i WAS looking forward to this but not anymore.

  • @ 31, I agree Flower in 3D would be excellent, you should consider it, maybe like a DLC it could spark more sales of the title..

  • I will wait, slowly rocking in the corner assuring myself the delay is necessary.

  • sigh I hope your working on a another game too.

  • The first half of 2012 is starting to pile up!

  • Sorry Jenova, but Spring 2012 is not a firm date.

  • Really enjoyed the beta when playing it so was hoping it would come out a bit sooner. You know what they say….good things come to those who wait. Looking forward to this release next year!

  • Great update. thanks for telling us that beta is going well. cant wait to play this game when its finally release! I wish more companies were like this instead of keeping every little thing left in the dark.

  • damn…thats a long time

  • Man, why do I only get invited to FPSer multi-player beta’s? Pouty face.

    Seriously, looking forward to it. I need my variety in gaming and these guys have been pretty good at giving me something different from the rest.

  • The game looks great guys, it’s clear that a lot of heart and passion went into making this happen, I can’t wait to play it!

  • Just a heads up this should be our free PSN game for the month for plus users. I am expecting it to be the free game so no surprises please.

  • Spring 2012? Don’t you mean Christmas 2011? : )

    It’s so gorgeous. More polish? This gem already shines! I’m really looking forward to it.

  • *sigh* if they’re going to delay this long could they at least make the beta available to everyone? Like an open beta or something or even just a single player (only) demo

  • bummer its not coming out this year, hopefully the extra time allows for more polish and making the game great.

  • @EnigmaNemesis Agree 100% homie…this company would do an awesome game with vita.

    Cant wait for journey thank you guys for your awesome work.

  • ugh, after the awesome Beta I assume it was coming sooner!

    will there be another beta? can’t wait to play this game some more and meet more people on the Journey..

  • I’ll be waiting (:
