Journey now coming out spring 2012

Though flying out to Japan for Tokyo Game Show was loads of fun, TGS was all the weaker thanks to the absence of The Last Guardian, as the beautiful looking game that we once hoped would hit the PS3 this year seems to be a ways off. Still, we could take solace in knowing that Journey was coming this year to fill the void of PS3-exclusive works of stunning artistic expression. Now it turns out the presumed 2011 release wasn’t as assured as we thought, as the game has now been confirmed for “Spring 2012.”

On the official PlayStation blog today, Jenova Chen from Journey developer thatgamecompany let expectant players know that they still had about six more months of waiting for the gorgeous, mysterious title. After thanking the lucky group of closed beta testers for their support, he revealed the release window, writing, “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.”

Though we hate having to wait even longer for this precious PSN downloadable, we’ll just have to comfort ourselves with the approximately 8,000 games coming out between now and December 7.

    I got my hands on this for a good 20 mins at gamefest the other week. It really is beautiful! Think along the lines of an HD Wind Waker play and graphic style with very simplistic controls like Limbo.

    Why do you evil bastards keep showing us this game, then tell us we have to wait another half a year for it? Argh!

    Balls. I was really hoping to play this soon, as I couldn't find my way into the beta.

    Henry you are confusing me! Isn't it spring 2012 and not 2011 like you wrote in the article?
