Hi everyone, this is Jenova Chen, President and Creative Director of thatgamecompany. It’s been quite a ride seeing how far Journey has come in the two and a half years since its launch on PlayStation 3.
Thanks to the many referrals of our players over the years, we’ve seen a steady flow of new players discovering the game and a community of veterans helping them along the way. Many players who bought a PS4 wrote us wondering if they will be able to experience Journey one day.
Today we are happy to share that a whole new generation of players will experience the wonder of Journey when it comes to PlayStation 4 later this year.
Thanks to the heartfelt efforts of fellow developers Tricky Pixels, players new and old alike will share in the beloved Journey experience in visually stunning 1080p. More details about Journey’s release on PlayStation 4 are in the works for future announcement.
We are proud to share the news today that our studio has entered the next phase of development on our upcoming project and has raised an additional $7 million in funding. We are happy to partner with Capital Today and a team of other investors who share our vision in making meaningful interactive experiences that inspire, connect, and emotionally touch the hearts of players around the world.
With this new investment, our studio is able to scale up development efforts to focus on making the best game possible in the same spirit as flOw, Flower, and Journey. We’ll also begin laying the infrastructure to self-publish, market, and distribute on our own terms for this next project and beyond.
Since finishing Journey, the team has been hard at work to make an emotionally engaging experience centered around human connections for players of all ages and backgrounds. We’re eager to share more information with everyone as we get further into development. Until then, a big thanks to everyone for your patience and ongoing support.

We’re really excited to say that Flower will be a permanent part of The Smithsonian American Art Museum’s permanent collection!
This is different from The Art of Video Games exhibit that was in the same museum for half of 2012, which was only a temporary exhibit and is now traveling across the United States. You can check out the locations that the exhibit will travel to by clicking right here.
Flower, together with Halo 2600, is currently being prepared to be displayed in Washington, D.C. The new exhibit will be open to the public at a later date. These two games are just the first in the collection, so expect to see more information about amazing games entering the museum in the future. Read more >

Back in September, we asked you what questions you had for Composer Vincent Diamante (Cloud, Flower, New Game) and Feel Engineer Adam Lederer (New Game). We picked some of the best answers and answered them. Be prepared, though, because these are some epic answers:
You’ve heard it right, folks! Our first two PlayStation 3 games are now being ported over to the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Vita! Check out this video for details:
That’s right! The PS Vita and PS4 versions of flOw and Flower will be completely free on for all of you who purchased each respective game on the PlayStation Store. If you bought flOw on the PS3, you’ll get it free for PS4 and PS Vita. And if you are late to the game and buy Flower on PS4, you’ll get the PS3 and Vita versions for free. Flower will be released on both platforms on Nov. 15th, and flOw will be released on both platforms on Nov. 29th.
