Few games in the Playstation 3 library are talked about as fondly as Journey, Thatgamecompany’s revolutionary open-world wandering saga. Upon its release in 2012, Journey became the fastest-selling title in the history of the Playstation Network marketplace. The game did so well that it achieved something few digital releases have the honor of getting: a physical release. It was packaged with Thatgamecompany’s other previous offbeat titles Flower (where you play as a flower) and FlOw and sold on disc in 2013.
If you skipped out on that release two years ago, things turned out well for you, because there will be an upgrade soon. The three-pack that contains Journey will be rereleased, this time for PS4, and it will run at sixty frames a second. Journey will also be made available as a stand-alone title on PSN, where FlOw and Flower already are. It’s not a sequel, but it could be a step in the right direction toward one.
Though Thatgamecompany has not made another game since Journey, claiming they had been pushed to bankruptcy by it, fortunes have changed. In 2014 it was reported they had raised $7 million from a venture capital firm for their next game, which has yet to be revealed publicly.
