Thatgamecompany co-founder Jenova Chen has said the studio’s next game will be “inspired” by Journey, indicating it could bring people together in the same way as its last game did.

Noting the next title would be “definitely inspired” by the fastest-selling PSN game ever, Chen told GI International that “It’s nice to hear that a game can bring people closer together and create more trust. I want all [my] future games to have that kind of quality.”

Chen added that now the next TGC game has kicked off development with a publisher set to be determined in the next few weeks, offers haven’t stopped coming in.

“When we came out of school it was a Cinderella story. At the time we were nobodies, students coming out of school.

“Today it’s more like all these people saying, ‘We want to work with you’, and everybody’s promising the best thing, but you really have to talk with them, meet them, to get an idea of what these people really are.”

Chen told VG247 last week a deal for the next game would be sorted within the next month or so, with a reveal of the game set to come sometime this year.
