Journey, Flower Developer's Next Game May Skip PlayStation

  • Sky is thatgamecompany's next game, and it's Apple-exclusive

Sky will launch on iPhone, iPad and Apple TV, no other platforms are now confirmed. Since then, a tweet from thatgamecompany indicated that it was coming to these platforms first, not exclusively.

Back in 2014, we reported that the studio had secured $7 million in funding for this project. The game will, like Journey before it, be a mixture of traveling and social interaction. Like Journey, Sky will let players play with up to eight players online. The themes of the game include love, friendship and compassion, which are common in That Game Company's titles.




Whatever the case, it's clear we can expect another emotional, likely wordless, and visually gorgeous journey above and beyond thatgamecompany's past excellent work. People have been waiting 5 years for Thatgamecompany to announce their next game, and I don't think anybody would have expected that time to come during an Apple TV segment during an Apple event. Sky is scheduled to launch "this winter".

The downside, or upside, depending on where your loyalties lie, is that it's going to be Apple-exclusive...for now. Players take control of the Children of Light, and their goal is to bring the light "where it is needed the most".
