Journey developer thatgamecompany raised $7 million in funding from Chinese private equity firm Capital Today and others, studio manager Sunni Pavlovic announced today
According to Pavlovic, the independent developer is looking to distribute, market and self-publish its future endeavors with its past titles having been backed by Sony. The investment will also allow the studio to "scale up development efforts" on its next game, an unannounced project "in the same spirit as Flow, Flower, and Journey."
"Since finishing Journey, the team has been hard at work to make an emotionally engaging experience centered around human connections for players of all ages and backgrounds," Pavlovic wrote on the studio's official site. "We’re eager to share more information with everyone as we get further into development. Until then, a big thanks to everyone for your patience and ongoing support."
