Josef Fares, the Swedish film director and also game designer, has discovered his confidence in projects he’s behind. He also discovered the number of copies A Way Out has managed to sell. All of the talks were listed in an IGN interview, where he states numerous events connected to the game.
Fares has stated that A Way Out has sold over 3.5 million copies, which is a huge achievement for a small team of people that worked on the game. Below you can find the official statement:
When I believe in something, nothing can stop me. Obviously, no one believed in [A Way Out] – not even EA thought it would sell, but they still believed in me. I didn’t care. I was like, ‘This is going to happen.’ Now, we’ve sold almost 3.5 million units of that game. These numbers for a small team of 30, 35 people are madness, you know? And at 3.5 million units sold, that means that, I don’t know, almost seven million people played this game, which is crazy.
Furthermore, Fares has discovered that he has plans about creating a new game. Apparently, a game for which he claims to be very different than A Way Out:
No, no, no, no, no. The next game I have in my head is very different to this. I mean, very different. This is not the new tone for the kind of game we’re doing. The next game is totally different. It’s something totally else, which is so cool. We’re going to start with it in the next month.
