Very good reason, but i think it'd be nice to hear how they intend to achieve that success. What are they going to do differently other than a multiplatform release.

Let's sell a majority share to Nintendo, copy their best ideas, then get sold to Microsoft and retire.
Childhood pictures redeem, clean and so serene
See myself without ruining lines
Whole days throwing sticks into streams

I have crawled so far sideways
I recognise dim traces of creation

They are playing a tricky game there! Titles like Journey and Flower only appeal to a certain type of gamer, despite the critical success, and a short experience like that is always going to be sold for less than a big Hollywood-style blockbuster.
I'd like them to do an underwater game similar to Endless Ocean but with that Thatgamecompany magic. Wouldn't make them money though. The pursuit of money and the pursuit of art creation are very hard to combine effectively.
