The action-adventure game, A Way Out, has sold over one million copies in just three weeks, more than what EA has initially expected. Since then, Hazelight Studio has increased its workforce and moving into a new studio.
Eurogamer recently reported that EA will resume their partnership with Hazelight and the video game company will be in charge of publishing the studio’s next game. Director of Hazelight Studio, Josef Fares, has clarified the developer’s connection with EA as super-good. Fares also mentions that their next project intends to enter full production in another month, but it may still be years away from revealing anything. It is going to be bigger in scope and scale compared to Fares’ previous game, and it will be lengthier than A Way Out.
[quote style=’1′ cite=” title=”]Yeah, we’re with EA. It’s no problem. It’s super-good support. I don’t care what publisher I work with it’s going to be the same. This is how I work: I respect the economical aspect but nobody fucks with the vision – it’s very, very important. And they know it at EA now, and they’re super-supportive – super-supportive.[/quote]
A Way Out was an exclusively co-op adventure where players assume the role of one of two prisoners making their daring escape from prison. What begins as a thrilling breakout quickly turns into an unpredictable, emotional adventure unlike anything seen or played before.
