'Sky' Launches March 2018 on Apple TV, iPhone, and iPad in United States

Apple today confirmed that the launch of Sky: Light Awaits for Apple TV, iPhone, and iPad has been delayed until March 2018 in the United States.

The game was originally slated to launch in winter 2017, but that timeframe seemed increasingly unlikely as the end of the year drew near, and fine print at the bottom of Apple's iPhone X and Apple TV pages now reflects the delay.

Sky soft launched in the Philippines earlier this week, and Apple hasn't updated its fine print outside of the United States, so it's unclear if the March 2018 launch date will apply to all countries or just major markets.

Sky was unveiled by game studio thatgamecompany during Apple's iPhone X event back in September. Described as a social adventure, players are tasked with flying through a kingdom and bringing light to dark places. The game supports up to eight players and can be played with just one finger on both iOS and Apple TV.


Like thatgamecompany's critically acclaimed console games Journey, Flower, and Flow, Sky has beautiful graphics and soundtracks that create a cinematic experience. It is the company's first game since Journey was released in 2012.

Sky will be exclusive to Apple TV, iPhone, and iPad when it launches on the App Store for iOS and tvOS in March. Pricing has not been disclosed.

Saw the title and was hoping that it was Sky TV launching in the states. Was excited to catch English Premier League on my Apple TV, but sadly, no.
