Of all the games we saw and played at E3 back in June, thatgamecompany’s Journey was probably one of our absolute favorites. Yes, that’s even when stacked up against Uncharted 3, Skyrim and Batman: Arkham City. Journey is a beautiful looking title whose gameplay is truly one of a kind. That’s why we’re ecstatic that Sony has revealed a launch window for the PlayStation Network exclusive title. You can expect Journey in Spring 2012.

Hey, it might not be a firm date, but it’s better than nothing.

Thatgamecompany’s creative director, Jenova Chen, took to the official PlayStation Blog to make the announcement. It seems the online beta for Journey was a resounding success, which made thatgamecompany comfortable about pegging a Spring 2012 time frame for the title’s official release.

“Fortunately, the online beta went very well, and our continued playtests have given us great feedback on the work we have left to complete,” explained Chen. “While there is still a ton of care and polish needed, we can’t wait to finally deliver Journey, TGC’s take on an online adventure game.”

And we can’t wait to play it. Bring on Spring 2012 already.
