“I trust my instincts and what I believe in a lot,” Fares told Polygon back in February. “And A Way Out was never any doubt, even if many people were concerned. Like, what about the market, will people play this if it’s only co-op … I’m like, No, this what we’re going to do. And we’re seeing that there is a market for it.”
