The gorgeous follow-up to Braid is coming out in January

The long-awaited follow-up to Braid finally has a release date. Developer Jonathan Blow has revealed that his next game, a puzzle / exploration title called The Witness, will be hitting the PS4 and PC on January 26th. The news was announced via a slick new trailer, which shows off the game's beautiful world — and it looks quite a bit better than when we checked out the game at E3 last year. The Witness has players exploring a huge, abandoned island, solving puzzles to uncover just what's going on. Think of it like a modern, open take on Myst. It's a big departure from the more traditional, side-scrolling Braid, and it's been in the works for some time — it was first announced way back in 2009.
