It’s been quite a long *pun ahead* journey for thatgamecompany’s indie hit Journey to come to Steam, but it finally has a solid release date, as announced by Annapurna Interactive on Twitter today.
Journey, which originally launched exclusively for PlayStation 3 in 2012, is a short, gorgeous indie adventure game that has since been hailed as one of the greatest games of all time. In fact, it landed the number 8 spot on Twinfinite’s own top 15 games of the decade, and for good reason.
It was previously believed that the game wouldn’t be coming to Steam; in a tweet from thatgamecompany in 2015, it was said that it wouldn’t be coming to Steam. That is, until Journey released for The Epic Games Store in 2019, the first time the game had been published off of a Sony platform since its release. The iOS port shortly followed.
Now, the iconic indie title will be available on Steam for the first time, 8 years after the game’s initial release. You should definitely pick it up if you haven’t before; it’s amazing.
“Explore the ancient, mysterious world of Journey as you soar above ruins and glide across sands to discover its secrets. Play alone or in the company of a fellow traveler and explore its vast world together,” as the Steam page describes. “Featuring stunning visuals and a Grammy-nominated musical score, Journey delivers a breathtaking experience like no other.”
Journey will be available on Steam on June 11.
