Thatgamecompany Announces New Game 'Sky' During Apple Event

The next game from the creators of Journey. Sky will have an orchestral soundtrack and, thanks to the 810X fusion chip on the new Apple TV, looks attractive. Sky is a romantic-social adventure game where players explore by flying through the clouds of a mysterious world.

On stage, Jenova Chen stated that their studio treats games as an art form and they hope to use Sky as medium to bring people together instead of playing alone.

The game will take advantage of the Metal 2 API graphics programming language, as well as the set-top box's A10 fusion chip to deliver what looked to be very silky 4K visuals.

No release date has been announced yet for Sky, although the game's reveal trailer teases that the title is "coming soon". Finally, late past year, Thatgamecompany released a trio of images that highlighted the tone of what we now know to be Sky.

In Sky, you play as one of the Children of Light.

On their official blog, Thatgamecompany wrote "If you can imagine the delight of visiting a theme park where lasting memories are made, we envision Sky will sometimes feel like that". In a tweet posted after Chen's appearance, thatgamecompany explained that Sky will launch first on Apple platforms, but didn't name any other platforms.
