A Way Out Will Not Get A Switch Release

While yes it would be perfect for the Switch – it ain’t coming.

With A Way Out just under a week before its release the director behind the indie studio Hazelight, Josef Fares has been letting little details slip regarding the game, a couple of days ago we learned that the game would take around 6-8hrs to complete, from start to finish.

Gamers have also been wondering whether or not there would be a release on Nintendo hybrid platform, the Switch – especially considering the nature of the hardware is that to push co-op gaming. Unfortunately, this won’t be the case – Josef Fares has confirmed that there will not be a Switch release for the game.


‘From the creators of Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons comes A Way Out, an exclusively co-op adventure where you play the role of one of two prisoners making their daring escape from prison.
What begins as a thrilling breakout quickly turns into an unpredictable, emotional adventure unlike anything seen or played before. 
A Way Out is an experience that must be played with two players. Each player controls one of the main characters, Leo and Vincent, in a reluctant alliance to break out of prison and gain their freedom.
Play the entire experience with your friends for free using the friends pass free trial feature.’


A Way Out has already gone gold and will be releasing on March 23rd for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
