Journey dated for spring 2012

Sony has confirmed that Journey will finally be making the trek to PlayStation 3 in spring 2012.

Developed by thatgamecompany, Journey marks the third and final entry in a three-game publishing deal, which has so far included PSN outings flOw and Flower. The game was previously thought to be on the cards for a 2011 launch.

Jenova Chen, co-founder of thatgamecompany, said on the EU PlayStation Blog:

“Fortunately, the online beta went very well, and our continued playtests have given us great feedback on the work we have left to complete. While there is still a ton of care and polish needed, we can’t wait to finally deliver Journey, TGC’s take on an online adventure game.”

“Like all our games, Journey is an experiment. In the end, it’s what you think that matters. We are happy to announce Journey will be released Spring 2012, so you can experience the adventure for yourself.”
