Next thatgamecompany Title to “Change the Industry”

News Adventure Playstation 3


Asher Vollman, an independent game developer who for 10 months formerly worked for thatgamecompany – winner of numerous awards, including our own for their splendid PSN exclusive Journey  has dropped some morsels of information on the studio’s next title.

While he was working there, the project in question was under way and so he had first-hand experience in developing the game. In his most recent blog post, he referenced his leaving mid-project, saying “…the new game they’re making isn’t just something that you can casually abandon” before stating;

“Obviously I can’t divulge any details about it, but… it’s going to be huge. And I don’t mean it’s going to be a long sprawling game, I mean it’s going to be an IMPORTANT game. I genuinely believe it’s going to change the industry in a really positive way.”

Vollman also gives an idea of its development pipeline while explaining a large factor in his decision to go independent;

“The game is going to be incredible, but it is moving slowly. There are YEARS remaining on the project and, quite frankly, those are years I don’t want to give up for a game that isn’t truly mine.”

Vollman is talking it up quite a lot… do you guys expect this to be a truly revolutionary gaming experience from thatgamecompany in the next-generation?
