The studio was able to share that Control 2 is still in the concept stages of development so don’t expect it to be officially showcased anytime soon. Remedy Entertainment is working on a few projects at the moment, namely the long-awaited sequel to Alan Wake as well as remakes of the first two Max Payne games. It sounds like it will be a while before Control 2 goes full steam ahead in development, but we’ll wait and see.
Rami and Raffi Galante, co-CEOs of Digital Bros Group/505 Games, provided a statement about moving ahead with Remedy on Control 2:
“We are excited to deepen our cooperation with Remedy and continue the success story of Control together. Since its launch in 2019, Control has sold over 3 million copies. Control is the biggest investment 505 Games has ever made, so it has a special place in our hearts. We are grateful to the whole player community that has made Control such a long-lasting and loved game, and are even more excited to bring out Control 2.”
Control is currently available for PS4, Xbox One and PC with upgrade paths available for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
