Both of ThatGameCompany’s earlier projects, Flower and Flow, made their way from PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4 around the time of the latter console’s release, but the indie studio’s massively acclaimed 2012 hit Journey still has yet to make the (dare I say it) “journey” to the eighth console generation. If you’re hoping for that to change, then I’m right there with you (preferably with cross-buy, thank you), but according to ThatGameCompany, the decision is entirely in Sony’s hands.

When asked about the prospect of a “re-release of Journey on Ps4” on Twitter, ThatGameCompany responded, “It’s a possibility, but it’s all up to Sony. They own the game and all associated assets.”

Personally, I think Journey being ported the PlayStation 4 is pretty likely. Disregarding the potential tease from Nathan Gary months back, both of ThatGameCompany’s other titles have already been ported over, and as far as I know Journey‘s by far the most widely renowned of the three, not to mention the newest. Plus, Sony seems to really enjoy buffing their indie library. The way I see it, porting Journey to PlayStation 4 just makes sense.

What do you think? Will we be seeing Journey on Sony’s eighth gen console?

Our Verdict

Barry Herbers
I write editorials here at Gamnesia and occasionally some news (though far less often than I used to). Here's some of my work, long-form game essays, if you have any interest in that sort of stuff: The Amount of Content in a Game Has Nothing to do with its Price A Game's Atmosphere is Defined by its Mechanics, Not its Aesthetic The Witcher 3's Introduction is Terribly Paced and Too Restrictive of its Players I'm looking forward to The Last Guardian (had it pre-ordered since 2010), Rime, Night in the Woods, and Vane. If I had a niche, it would probably be the somewhat higher fidelity indie games, as take up most of the spots on that list. I'm also developing a no-budget video game with a friend, and you can follow me on Twitter (@TheVioletBarry) to hear about that and anything else I feel like saying. Film, games, it's that sort of stuff.
