Journey Devs Reveal That Their Next Game, Sky, Will Come to Apple First

Sky Will Be Available for Apple TV, iPad, and iPhone

At the Apple press conference held today, Jenova Chen took to the stage to reveal thatgamecompany’s next game, Sky. For fans of Journey, it was surprising to learn that you’ll have to own an Apple product to play it first.

As for the game, it’s being described as a social adventure game. The reveal trailer shows a cloak-wearing adventurer hopping and flying with other friends. It’s very reminiscent of Journey. On the company site, they describe the title: “It’s hard to explain the game, but a good place would be to say that Sky is a game specially created to be played, and shared, among loved ones and family. If you can imagine the delight of visiting a theme park where lasting memories are made, we envision Sky will sometimes feel like that.”

Geoff Keighley also has a quick interview that explains the thought process behind bringing the title to mobile. Chen, who considers himself a games evangelist, wanted the company’s next title to be on a platform that’s largely accessible by most people, including non-console gamers. Thus, launching on Apple products make more sense, but they haven’t ruled a console release in the future either. That said, the Apple-first launch news will certainly leave console fans salty.

Stay tuned for more Sky news right here.

    Boo. Well, every game company is allowed to screw up at least once I guess. Hope the donkey masses are able to figure out how awesome a game this is, probably a stretch though.

    Can’t wait to pay for lives.
    Can’t wait to pay for in game money.
    Can’t wait to fiddle with touch controls only.
    Can’t wait for it to be full of ads.

    I know I’m sounding negative but honestly. Good phone games are more rare than finding a leprechaun dancing the Macarena on a rainbow unicorn.
