Journey Destined for North America on 13th March
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Arrives in Europe 14th March
Yesterday we reported that the highly-anticipated Journey begins its travels in Japan on 15th March: thankfully, the rest of the world can also get ready to depart.
North America will receive thatgamecompany’s latest release first, with the title available to download from PlayStation Store on 13th March for $14.99. The European download doesn't yet have a fixed price but will be available on 14th March.
Jenova Chen, co-founder of thatgamecompany, confirmed the launch date and shared his hopes for the title, along with some thoughts on the challenges of its development.
This last Sunday, February 12th, was the anniversary of the launch of our previous game Flower. We started working on Journey right after Flower launched, and the past three years have flown by extremely fast. In these three years, we at thatgamecompany and our friends in SCEA Santa Monica Studio have faced many challenges together and emerged stronger. Much sweat and tears have been put into the development of the game, and many people have come and gone.
So for us, the Journey in the game has also become a metaphor for the development process of the game itself. Our team is very close to our own mountaintop; we are just a few short weeks away from letting the world experience what we’ve poured our hearts and souls into these last three years. I can’t describe how eager we are to let everyone finally play the game and hear about your experiences with it.
Are you looking forward to the journey?
