The studio behind amazing titles such as Journey (one of the fastest selling titles in PSN history) and Flower has now become an independent game studio.

Thatgamecompany, which started in 2006, had a deal with Sony that lasted for three titles, and now that Journey has been released, they can now make games for whichever platform they want. You can thank Benchmark Capital for coming to their aid and helping them raise enough funds to become independent. Here is a quote by Jenova Chen, co-founder of the studio, from the Thatgamecompany website.

Today I am pleased to announce thatgamecompany has raised funding to develop and release our games independently. This enables us to bring our games to more platforms and provide our players the highest quality experience at every point of contact.

Making this possible is Mitch Lasky from Benchmark Capital. Together we share a vision for bringing emotionally compelling interactive entertainment to players worldwide.

We are very excited about our new adventure. Please stay tuned, as we look forward to sharing with you more details about our next game soon.

So are you excited to see what game they will come up with now and what platform they will release it on? Comment below.
