Journey, thatgamecompany’s award-winning adventure game from 2012, has had real legs. Since debuting on the PlayStation 3 as a digital download, Journey has made its way to PlayStation 4, mobile platforms, and even the PC last year. But when Journey did arrive on PC, it was a timed exclusive for the Epic Games Store. On June 11, 2020, prospective players holding out for a Steam release will finally be able to snag a copy.
The announcement comes from Annapurna Interactive, publisher of many thatgamecompany titles. There’s no word of any bonuses or special features, but that isn’t really what Journey is about. It’s a unique sort of experience that has made it to various platforms due to word of mouth and buzz from critics, award shows, and more.

Journey has received several nominations for awards, and won its fair share as well. That includes multiple awards from the BAFTAs, the Game Developers’ Choice awards, and of course many gaming outlets like IGN and GameSpot. But perhaps most notably, Journey was also nominated for the Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media award for the 2013 Grammys. It didn’t win, but it was the very first video game to be nominated.
Journey will come to Steam on June 11, 2020. There’s no price yet, but the Steam store page is live.
