Journey slips to 2012

Thatgamecompany's Flower follow-up, the online adventure Journey, never had a concrete release date, though the initial fact sheet said it would be released this year. In a post on the PlayStation Blog, co-founder Jenova Chen reveals that Journey will now be released next spring.

"For the past few months, we kept getting asked about Journey's release date," he writes. "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."
