Thatgamecompany's Next Game is Sky, Coming First on Apple TVs and iPhone

thatgamecompany finally showed of their newest game at Apple's iPhone presentation.

Thatgamecompany, the studio behind indie darlings such as Flower and Journey, finally showed off their newest game at today's Apple iPhone keynote event. The game is called Sky and it's coming first for Apple TV, iPhone, and iPad.

Jenova Chen, studio head of thatgamecompany, took the stage at today's Apple conference to show off Sky for the first time. At first glance, it looks very much like Journey, complete with flight mechanics and bell chime noises. Described as a "social adventure" game, Sky will let players fly with one another and collect unique little beacons around the world called "light". Like Journey, Sky will let players play with up to eight players online.

Sky will be available for the iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV, with the latter supporting 4K resolution and Siri controller support. In a tweet posted after Chen's appearance, thatgamecompany explained that Sky will launch first on Apple platforms, but didn't name any other platforms.

It's been five years since thatgamecompany put out Journey on the PlayStation 3. It has since received a PS4 re-release, but thatgamecompany then raised more than $7 million to work on a new project.
