In an interview with Polygon, thatgamecompany‘s Jenova Chen said that his latest game, Journey, which is exclusive to the PlayStation 3, didn’t sell as well as he had hoped. Because the game was released on a single platform, Chen says he feels that limiting Journey to the PlayStation 3 prevented it from achieving a broader success. To date, thatgamecompany developed three, award-winning games – Flow, Flower and Journey – all of which were released exclusively for the PlayStation 3.
“I wouldn’t say that the development of Journey was a successful example of game development. We bankrupted the company.”
“I think to have a financial success, that is going to change everyone, it has to be much bigger than a game on the Playstation platform.”
