Control DLC May Have Alan Wake Crossover

Recently revealed post-launch DLC content for Control may finally tie in to story of Alan Wake in 2020.

In a recent venture with publisher 505 Games, developer Remedy Entertainment has seen critical and commercial success with release of action-adventure game Control on PC via Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

According to their latest announcement for upcoming post-launch content roadmap for the game, two new expansions are revealed and one of them is clearly teasing a tie-in to 2010 supernatural horror universe of Alan Wake.

Before Control, Finnish developer Remedy made a reputation with critically acclaimed psychological thriller title Alan Wake. Although there was a stand-alone follow-up title Alan Wake's American Nightmare, fans never got a true sequel.

Players have already found clues, documents and Easter eggs during their mind-bending exploration of Control that clearly points at events of Bright Falls from first Alan Wake game that was launched almost 10 years ago for Xbox 360.

Initially, it was an easily missable teaser image of Control's second expansion AWE but when Remedy creative director/writer Sam Lake shared that image on Twitter with a cryptic caption, many people starts noticing what was up.

A closer look at poster of AWE expansion reveals official box art of Alan Wake in top half of its lettering that sued fonts from the same game. In below half, protagonist Jesse Faden of Control is probably fighting Hiss at Federal Bureau of Control.

AWE can either stand for either "Alan Wake Experience" or Altered World Events and the latter one actually makes more sense. Remedy has also teased these references earlier in their 2016 sci-fi adventure shooter title Quantum Break.

Although both Alan Wake and Control are set on different plots, many hints suggest that they both are from same universe and maybe even the latter is some sort of continuation of events that took place in Washington forest a decade ago.

According to press release, AWE will arrive on mid-2020 and will send Jesse to investigations sector of Oldest House, a part where FBC keeps tabs on Altered World Events and Bright Falls' case was what the Bureau investigated earlier.

With every lead matching and pointing to each other, there could is a very good chance for a crossover event or even nothing at all. If not anything, it can very much help revive a beloved series once again by providing a great launch pad.

Through its ending, Control has set up possibilities for a potential sequel to expand further on lead character Jesse Faden's story and despite Remedy expressing to make Alan Wake 2, nothing can be said for sure until next year.

Aside for seeking out five different types of missing relics, also be on the lookout for Ritual Skulls dropped by skeletons, because that is something both the Order and mysterious stranger are interested to pay well for.

When you are at it, pirates can earn some extra doubloons in exchange for a new treasure type called Reaper's Chests. These will not only unlock commendations on top of your regular rewards but earns you Death Defier Title as well.
