Mere hours before E3 goes live with their press conference, kicking off E3, it seems they're still not safe from any of the Pre-E3 leaks. IGN France has just reported that according to their information a new game will be announced by EA called A Way Out. EA will be publishing this game in the same kind of way that they did for previous title Unravel, and as they are currently in the process of doing with Fe that was shown off last year.

The reported developer of this upcoming title is Hazelight Studios, a studio founded by the creator of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. Hazelight announced their formation back in 2014 during The Game Awards with the following trailer. This trailer has an explanation of the conception of the studio as well as a tease showing men on a train.

The EA Originals program was originally announced by Patrick Soderlund back in 2016 when he revealed that the program was designed to "find these rare beads that will conquer the hearts of the players" and is a way for EA to help financially small studios make their game in a more comfortable environment.
