Jenova Chen, chief executive officer of Thatgamecompany, took the stage at Apple’s event today to show off its new game, Sky, for the Apple TV (including the new 4K model), iPad, and iPhone. It will be exclusive to those platforms. Sky will release this winter, but we don’t know the price.
It is a multiplayer social game that has you soaring through clouds. It looks like Journey, a previous Thatgamecompany title, but with flying. And you can control the entire game with the Apple TV remote.
Thatgamecompany has made critical and artistic hits, including Flower and Journey. Like them, Sky looks stunning (thanks to Apple’s API, Metal 2). It could be a big selling point to gamers that have loved Thatgamecompany’s previous offerings.
Those games came out for PlayStation platforms, which makes Sky’s debut on Apple TV 4K a surprise. Chen noted that Sky will be exclusive to Apple devices, so it will not be coming to PlayStation 4.
