A Way Out is a great co-op game and easily ranks among the best in this genre. The game was designed from the ground up to be played with a partner and the developers even took the extra step to add a friend pass feature that lets a player share the game with a friend without having to buy another copy for them. This could have resulted in less sales but it has turned out to be the exact opposite since the developers have announced that A Way Out is a success for them.
In a tweet by the developer Hazelight Studios, they confirmed that the game has now sold through 1 million copies. This sales milestone was achieved in just 2 weeks making it one of the fastest selling game for the studio.
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!
