Hazelight Studios, the indie development studio behind A Way Out, has announced that the title has sold over 1 million copies in just over two weeks. As an EA Originals title, this has apparently even taken Electronic Arts by surprise as according to industry sources, their estimates has the title only selling 900,000 copies over its lifetime.
We just found out that #AWayOut has sold over 1 million copies, in just over two weeks! Words cannot describe how much this means to us. Thank you to all of you for your support!

Given A Way Out being an EA Originals title, this is excellent news for both the industry and Hazelight Studios. We hope that Electronic Arts continues to greenlight smaller titles so they can potentially achieve this level of success and therefore make more unique games.
