Thatgamecompany “exploring ways to bring our games to bigger audience”

Monday, 27th February 2012 14:37 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Thatgamecompany has said its looking at ways to expand beyond just PlayStation platforms and take its games to “a bigger audience”.

The co-founder of the Journey developer Jenova Chen told PushSquare it was negotiating elsewhere, now that its three game deal with Sony for flOw, Flower and Journey was complete, with an announcement hopefully coming “soon” according to Chen.

“Right now we are very much exploring ways to bring our games to a bigger audience, beyond just PlayStation,” he said.

“We are still in the process of negotiating, but I hope that we can announce it [soon]. But right now it’s still in the process.”

Job listings for TGC’s next game suggests online will play a big part of it.

Journey launches on March 14 in Europe, with reviews for it lifting this Thursday. Protip: watch the mountains, save the pennies.

    Yeah, because a game funded and published by SCE is going to end up on a rival’s distribution platform.

    ^ That’s their current situation. The article is all about them exploring options to go bigger, it’s pretty much common sense man.

    XBLA seems like the least likely avenue, given the style of their games; the platform’s TRC would prove pretty exasperating.

    Steam/PC seems like a given, with iOS not being out of the question. Perhaps they’d even do a cross-platform PS3 and PC game.
