A Way Out is announced!

There’s a reason we’ve been silent for so long – we’ve been working very hard on our new game A Way Out. This awesome co-op only adventure game was unveiled to the world during this year’s EA Play press conference on June 10th and the reactions from fans and press alike has been great! A Way Out comes out early 2018. Check it out:

Today we can let you all know that we’re building our new game with Unreal Engine 4. Since the core team of Hazelight built Brothers in Unreal Engine 3, going with the latest installment of the Unreal Engine for our new project felt natural. It’s a great engine and even though the team hadn’t worked in UE4 before, we were up and running in no time.
