A Way Out has been considered a rather niche title, thrust into an industry drowning in short-lasting online multiplayer titles. The fact that it is a 100 percent cooperative narrative title - meaning that it cannot be completed with just one person - oozing with vibes from The Shawshank Redemption makes the game a difficult sell. However, Hazelight Studios, developer of A Way Out, recently announced that it has sold a million copies of the title, which is incredibly impressive, considering where it stands in this day and age and the fact that EA did not expect the title to sell so many copies. In fact, EA expected that it would sell only 203,000 copies in the 2018 fiscal year and 894,000 copies in its entire lifetime.

Simply put, A Way Out has sold more in two weeks than it has expected to sell in its entire lifespan.

Then again, it has scored quite a few positive reviews and the price point is tempting - only $30.

Soon enough, I will grab this and see for myself why it has sold so many copies. A Way Out is available for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
