Tagged games:

The thatgamecompany studio wants to announce a new game this year. thatgamecompany has developed Fl0W Flower and Journey for SCE and fullfilled their 3 games contract with Sony. Right now they are negotiating with new Partners and working on a new title. Journey was the fastest selling game ever on the PSN, and was critically acclaimed. And flower was one of the most impressive and unique games of this generation. So question is now, who will be the new partner? And what could the new game be?

I remember hearing they were planing to go multiplatform. They will probably go with EA, Activision, Ubisoft, etc. It will be interesting to see how much more success they can achieve without being bound to a single platform.



If it's Naughty Dog then we have the best game of all time on our hands.

Doubtfull they want to go multiplat, and I am sure they are looking for a publisher right now.

My guess would be Ubisoft, EA or Acitivision

If it's Activision I'll literally cry.

Sony should have bought them while they had the chance. They have made some of the best experiences for the PSN. :p

If that's the case, you can say goodbye to their creative standards. Jenova Chen himself said it best:

 

The three-game deal struck with his studio produced the eclectically esoteric, critically-acclaimed trio of fl0w, Flower and Journey. All of which, Chen adds with a chuckle, "failed to deliver in the original time we proposed.

 

"I would imagine that's probably impossible for Activision or Microsoft to do. They'd be just like, you have to ship by this day." An interesting conundrum for his studio, then, which is currently looking for a new publishing partner having fulfilled its contractual duties with Sony.

Activision might be a problematic partner, and except of the Call of Duty franchise they have no good games at all. But they have money and everybody loves money. So we´ll see. I personally hope for EA.

I hope you're joking. I'd prefer Activision to EA.

While I don't think either would be ideal, EA at least have had some decent partnerships over the past few years. Activision? Not so much...I think Ubisoft would be most accommodating of the stylistic games that thatgamecompany release...
