Exact sales figures for thatgamecompany’s gorgeous adventure title, which released on PSN earlier this month, have yet to be revealed by Sony, but nonetheless Creative Director Jenova Chen took the opportunity to thank fans for their support.

“It has been an exciting two weeks for us since we launched Journey on PlayStation Store,” said Chen on the PlayStation Blog.

“We see the personal connection between our work and the players, which is the most real and priceless reward for us. For that, we thank you so much for your support, for spending time and money to play our game and for spreading the word about Journey to your dear friends and family.

“Thanks to you, Journey has officially broken PlayStation Network and PlayStation Store sales records, surpassing all first and third-party games to become the fastest-selling game ever released in the SCEA region on the PlayStation Network.”

Chen also revealed that the game’s soundtrack would be available to buy through PlayStation Store and iTunes from April 10th. A limited edition CD will also be available.

It was revealed earlier today that thatgamecompany’s President and Co-Founder Kellee Santiago would be leaving after six years with the developer.

“So much of my work at Thatgamecompany was really supporting Jenova [Chen's] visions for the types of games he wanted to make,” she said.

“”And I felt like I have done everything I needed to do there, and that he’s in a great place now to go on and continue with some of the other people at Thatgamecompany to take that to a whole new height.”
