We distinctly remember Josef Fares, the confident and outspoken game director, hyping up It Takes Two ahead of release. Even in the earliest videos about the game, he was saying the game would "blow your f***ing mind away". Well, the cocky creator is at it again, already talking up Hazelight Studios' unannounced fourth game.
In an interview with Push Square, Fares talks about the critical reception to It Takes Two, and gets onto the subject of the team's next project. "To be honest, I'm not that surprised [about the good reception], because I always have a strong belief in what we do," he tells us. He continues, hyping up the next game from Hazelight. "If you ask me about our next game, I can tell you now, it will be even better than It Takes Two," Fares says. "It's gonna be so crazy. That's how sure I am, like the concept, what's gonna happen, and people will be blown away."
It's in keeping with his character to talk the talk, but with the studio's history, we can probably have faith he'll come good on his word in the end. Hazelight's next game is likely a couple of years or so away, but we're confident it'll be worth the wait.

With the strides and the passion this guy has. I believe everything he says. Guy doesn't bs, and really takes chances with the style of games he makes.
Hazelight is one of the very few developers I feel like I can trust on word alone. I cannot express how much I love It Takes Two. I really enjoyed A Way Out, but that was just a warm-up in hindsight. If Hazelight is going to continue with co-op games, I seriously do not know how they can top It Takes Two. Say what you will about Fares' public personality, but the man knows how to lead a phenomenal team.
I honestly believe him. The guy is an insane loudmouth but it’s kinda great how he actually backs it up.
I hear it's going to be a very inclusive game.
Love this guy and his work. Can't wait to get a chance to try It Takes Two.
My friend invited me to play It Takes Two with him. We’re a few chapters in but I can’t believe how much fun I’m having with it. It’s seriously really, really good 😁
I cannot wait for whatever they do next. I loved A Way Out and It Takes Two. I really hope it sticks with the split screen co-op.
Played the demo of It Takes Two with my Nephew (who saw a YouTuber playing it and asked me to play). It’s brilliant. Pretty lengthy for a demo too. Not the kind of game I would usually play but I was surprised how much fun it was. It reminded me of the movie Honey I shrunk the Kids, which I kept telling my Nephew whilst we were playing. His response: ‘What’s that?’ ... 🙄
I’ll definitely pick up the full game eventually.
If it is 50% as good as It Takes Two I would be blown away already. What a gaming masterpiece that game is!
It Takes Two, one of the best games of this generation already. Anyone who also owns a console can play with you for free if you have a copy of the game! Get more people into this if you can, it's phenomenal
Haha fair enough! A good amount of ambition and drive are what pulls us to create good art, I was interested in It Takes Two from the first trailer and I'm interested in what they come up with next.
Great game, just sucks that both players need PlayStation Plus for online co-op to work.
I will find out when its released im not going believe anyone on its word.
