Sounds Like Journey’s Finally Done

Just take my damn money.

It’s worth waiting a good, long time for the next game (though experience might be a better word for their past stuff) from thatgamecompany, and I can’t think of a game I’ve been patiently waiting harder for than Journey.

Fortunately, it looks like we won’t have to wait much longer.

“3 years is a long time,” said designer Jenova Chen on Twitter today, “[and] when you finally finished something and look back, ‘What have I done in the past 3 years?’ Hope it's worth it.”

Journey may be done, but it doesn’t have a release date yet, according to Chen.

“Once Sony figure out the right time, they will announce it,” he said. “I assume pretty soon.”

Fingers crossed.

So this took so long that I don't care much anymore. I feel bad, and I'm sure I'd care more if I'd played flower.

Ohhhhh golly gosh(not sarcasm)! I've been curious about this game for a while, really wanted to get my own hands on this one!  Thanks for the info

I can't wait. I hope it doesn't come out too soon after Mass Effect 3 though. That game's going to devour my life.

Soooo... I would be so stoked if this game was announced for Vita.

Posted by RadixNegative2

I think this is the first time I'm genuinely excited for a game featuring primarily sand environments.

Posted by metalsnakezero

I say the best time to release this game is during the summer since it'll fit well because of its setting. Either way I want it to be soon.

I thought this was about the band. I was like, "wait a minute, I thought they broke up long ago"?

Buying it as soon as it's released. One of my most anticipated titles of 2012.

Posted by UricTheOddball

It's done, so why am I not playing it right now!?

Posted by AngelN7

Great! this is one of the reasons as to why I bought a PS3 , the game still looks amazing

Posted by spilledmilkfactory
@Little_Socrates I'm kind of in the same boat. I'm not nearly as excited now as I was before, but I'll definitely still get it. Flower was amazing
Posted by Dagbiker

Could have had a awesome title
Looks like the Jorney is almost over.

Posted by Rattle618

Then... are were there yet?

Posted by teekomeeko

I hope this game is amazing, if only to hear Jeff walk his way into another "games aren't art" or "what do you kill?" type of discussion during GOTY podcasts.

First off, hell nah! Journey got a new lead singer awhile ago - they found a kid on Youtube from the Phillipines who sounds EXACTLY like Steve Perry. They've been touring around with Arnel Pineda (the 'n' needs a tilde over it; I don't know how to type that) for awhile now, and they sound as bitchin' as ever! See:

Secondly, there's no doubt this will be worth it. I just find it odd that they spent 3 years on it. Isn't the point of downloadable games to work on smaller games that can be done faster? It's why David Jaffe turned away from God of War to do Calling All Cars. It's why Valve wanted to do Half Life 2 episodes (they totally screwed up that plan, though). 3 years IS a lot of time to be working on something, especially for a team like ThatGameCompany.

Journey will be amazing and unforgettable. I just hope they don't 3 years with their next title.

Posted by Tearhead

It would be cool if this was free for ps+ subscribers. Most likely though, it wil just have a $3 discount.

Posted by SirOptimusPrime

Fuck yeah. Re-playing Shadow of the Colossus (the HD port) made me remember this game and really crave it.

Didn't have any interest in flow or flower, but this game seems neat.

Posted by ArchTeckGuru8

Looking forward to this!

Journey gets wayyyyyyyyy more attention than I think it should

Agreed.

If there are no terrorists for me to shoot in this desert I'm gonna be disapointed

Posted by DharmaBum

I'm still curious to know more about stumbling across another player wandering in your world.

Posted by Silver-Streak

I am excited to play a new machinegunless game.

Also, Jenova Chen seems pretty awesome after hearing him talk for a bit during the e3 broadcasts. I like his stuff(although I don't always think they're games), so I hope this plays as cool as it appears to.

Gods, can't wait for this.

What's the start-to-get-machine-gun time in this game?
