On 8th June 2019, Electronic Arts Inc. and partners Zoink Games, Glowmade and Hazelight Studios announced three new independent development projects coming to consoles and PC via the EA Originals: Lost in Random by Zoink Games, RustHeart by Glowmade, and a sequel to A Way Out by Hazelight Studios.
“We continue to connect innovative and creatively distinct new games from the best and boldest independent game makers to a global audience of players.” said Matt Bilbey, EVP Strategic Growth. “We want to offer our players the broadest, highest quality content possible, with the best access possible.”
EA Originals supports up-and-coming studios by showcasing unique, innovative games to more players on all platforms. Following the success of Coldwood Studios’ Unravel, the label has had success with the BAFTA-winning A Way Out by Hazelight and Fe by Zoink. The success of these partnerships has expanded the collaborative charter with new independent developers, such as the recently announced RustHeart from Glowmade and new EA Partner Velan Studios for future titles.
