A Way Out won't launch anymore after re-installing

★★★★ Novice



I had the voice glitch, where i couldnt hear any dialog, so I re-installed the game today.

Since then, the game won't launch anymore. Yesterday, the game always launched without any issues.


When launching the game:

  1. Origin opens a window where it says its launching -
  2. After that Origin disappears into system tray -
  3. After few seconds Origin appears again
  4. SOMETIMES in Taskmanager - Details -- I can see the awayout.exe popping up for a few seconds
  5. It did absoluty nothing except showing me "Ingame" in Origin 

Already tried:

  • Running system file checker and dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
  • Re-installed the game mulitple times on different hard disks
  • Re-installed Origin
  • Repaired the game multiple times
  • CCleaner
  • Clean Boot
  • Disabeling the cloud save option in origin and then go to my documents folder and rename the A way out folder
  • Set Origin in offline mode, than again into online mode
  • Clearing Origin Cache

I just cant fix it. Someone else got an idea?
