A Way Out Dev's Next Game Will Be Revealed at EA Play This Week

A Way Out Dev's Next Game Will Be Revealed at EA Play This Week

Josef Fares and company will be revealing their next game shortly.

It sounds like Hazelight Studios is about to reveal their next game later this week. EA Play takes place in just a few days time, and the next game from the devs behind A Way Out will be there.

You can see the announcement from Hazelight Studios director Josef Fares just below. EA Play takes place later this week June 18, and Hazelight Studios will teasing their next game in in a relatively small capacity.

Hazelight was founded back in 2014 in Sweden, and would go on to release A Way Out four years later in 2018. The big selling point of the game was that it was entirely co-op based in a big way: two players could play the game on the same screen at the same time, and they would be entirely independent from one another.

For example, one player could be in cutscene, while another player could be out exploring the prison freely. Caty enjoyed A Way Out in 2018, writing in her review that even "with a cliched story at its center, A Way Out's persistent co-op elevates it to new heights for the newly married co-op adventure game."

EA Play takes place on Thursday, June 18. EA's Motive Studios are teasing their next project, Star Wars: Squadrons, which would be a pretty safe bet to be at the showcase later this week. Elsewhere though, there's relatively little indication as to what EA could be showing off.
