We’re still not sure if it will make the Journey onto Android.
Earlier this year, Thatgamecompany’s Journey ended its seven-year PlayStation exclusivity deal, and released on PC for the first time. (Via the Epic Games Store.)
Journey is something special. The wordless adventure, that sees players paired up with strangers for a beautiful and emotional experience, very rarely sees people make it to the end without stirring up some serious feelings. And there are so few games that are universally considered classics. It’s why it’s important, then, that more people get to play it.
That’s the first piece of the puzzle. The second piece is that Sky, Thatgamecompany’s newest game, released straight onto iOS a month ago.
So… Journey is no longer a PlayStation exclusive. Thatgamecompany is trying to bring it to a wider audience. And Sky, the follow-up to Journey, is out on iOS. Those are your hints. Need something more? Fine. We’ll let Jenova Chen of Thatgamecompany spell it out for you:

Journey is currently available on PS3, PS4, PC, and iOS, then. You’ll need to sign in to Apple’s Game Centre to take advantage of the game’s multiplayer, but it’s so worth it.
We’re yet to hear if Thatgamecompany will be bringing Journey to Android, but publisher Annapurna was keen to squash the idea of Journey coming to Xbox One.
unfortunately, no plans – just PC and iOS

But now that there’s hope for Journey on other platforms? Expect the Nintendo Switch port begging to commence in earnest.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
