The lights are on
Developer thatgamecompany, the team behind Flow, Flower, and Journey, have stated that it is currently looking for a publisher on its fourth game, which it hopes to announce soon.
In an interview with vg247, thatgamecompany co-founder Jenova Chen had said, "we’re negotiating with various partners, so maybe within the next month, we’ll be able to determine which is the [right deal]." At that point Chen said they would like to announce their next project adding, "we announced Flower half a year after we launched Flow. We announced Journey half a year after we launched Flower. So hopefully within this year, you’ll hear from us about our next game."
Sony and thatgamecompany had a three game exclusivity deal, so now that it has completed its contract with Sony, it's possible that the next game from thatgamcompany could be a multi-platform release.

Thats great news. I have confidence that they will continue to be creative even with a publisher.
A multiplat thatgamcompany release. Yes, now even more people can see the almighty glory that is thatgamcompany. I expect E3 news.
I'm glad to hear this. TGC has made some really awesome games, and I expect nothing less from their next project.
Played the hell outta journey, even played beyond the level with the wall glitches(like the first part broken bridge level). Good stuff.
I hope their next game actually has some talking characters for once. . .
I would like to play Journey, it seems like it would convey some crazy emotions.
hurry up and publish it sony!
I really hope they release their next game on the Xbox
i hope it comes to XBLA
I already know the title! Journeyer, yes!
I'm excited to hear anything new from them! I have yet to purchase any of their games, but I certainly will in the future, and after playing the Flower demo I can say that their magical experiences would be welcome on XBLA or PC. If they make it for E3, they will defiantly light up their publisher's press conference!
