We're glad to announce that Journey will finally release this Spring!

It's been a long time since we updated you on a release date, and we're glad to finally have a firm release window for you and can't wait until everyone can play the game!

EDIT:
Here's our blog post, but it's the same as on the EU and US PS Blogs:

yeah I just read it on IGN :-)

the $20 dollar's I saved on my PSN will have to wait a little longer then I guess :-) but 2012 is almost here! (you can buy christmas stuff already)

I think it's really really good that they take the feedback from the BETA and put it into the game! Or try to implement it

I was just thinking and talking to someone about the release date yesterday as a matter of fact because I thought now its either way October, November or December because it was still tba 2011 haha guess I was wrong lol

Thank you very much for posting the information and taking the time to make the final version of the game even better!

I value that!!

It's ok.
I'd rather have the perfect experience than an unfinished one.
I think sometimes publishers and marketing set the dates to the detriment of developers, forcing rush-jobs and skimming on QA.
Good to see tgc taking their time with it.

I'm glad that there's a release date, even if I have to wait a little longer, it will be worth the wait! :D

Yeah, the beta really, really helped us out! People just love to find bugs! (I was the first one in the office to play the game with people outside the game industry, and within a couple minutes, the game crashed! That was one heck of an experience!)

Yeah, I was always thinking it was going to be out in the Fall. In the mindset of what was said and shown at E3, I would have guessed it would be pushed back into February, 2012. But the team has been working hard on making sure that the game is intriguing for multiple playthroughs alone and with other people while making sure that the game gets finished as quickly as possible.

Austin's working very hard to make sure the soundtrack comes out as soon as possible, but it really depends on a lot of different things as to when it will come out. (Remember the fiasco with the flOw soundtrack? It's still scheduled to come out, though...)

I don't care when the soundtrack comes out... Honestly I'm just a big fan of Austin Wintory. Anything with great relaxing music is a pure win for me. :) :D

Good news on the early-2012-ish release date for Journey.

The flOw soundtrack is still scheduled to come out? Let me get out my 2021 calendar to mark down the date then :roll:

You mean Journey avatars for on here, or for on PSN? That is what I meant by icons. I guess they would still be called avatars though, so you are probably right there.

Avatars for PSN is what he meant.

I think that most likely the avatars won't appear on the PS Store for at least a month after the game is out.
