Josef Fares, the film director turned game director behind Brothers: a Tale of Two Sons and the upcoming A Way Out, is quite the character. His enthusiasm for his game shines through, he doesn’t mince his words, and he’s a lot of fun to talk to.
We recently sat down to play a few snippets of A Way Out ahead of its release next week – read our impressions here – playing alongside and chatting with Fares along the way. Out of this came an interesting tidbit about how the game has been financed under the EA Originals brand:
That's how EA works. They shower a dev with support while they're new, once they build up their success, they short-end them, buy them out, and squeeze every last monetary drop from their products before throwing them in the pit.
edit: Look at Respawn Entertainment
EA you snakes, lying between your teeth, and shedding crocodile tears. Summary what a croc of BS.
Of course they won’t make a single dollar. They’ll make more than that.
That's a load of crap. There is no way EA is not making any money on any sale of this game.
Yea right, they’re just doing it all completely for free. I really hate it when people say stupidly ridiculous lies & take people for idiots.
