July 26, 2018

During today’s financial conference call for investors and analysts, Electronic Arts Chief Executive Officer Andrew Wilson provided a few interesting tidbits about Hazelight’s recently-launched game A Way Out.

According to Wilson, more than 2.6 million players experienced the game between April and June.

Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen also mentioned later in the call that sales (both physical and digital) in the quarter outperformed expectations driven among other things by A Way Out (Alongside Battlefield 1 and FIFA Online 3).

A Way Out is currently available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and you can purchase it on Amazon.
