Over a year after its original release, developer Remedy Entertainment announces a sequel for 2019 action-adventure game Control and a co-op multiplayer spin-off game to be in works with publisher 505 Games in a new partnership deal.
Nearing last month, Remedy Entertainment reaffirmed a 2023 release window for Alan Wake II and talked about multiple Control sequels. In a recent update, Control 2 is officially announced to be in early stage of development at Remedy.
Signing a co-development and co-publishing agreement with 505 Games, a sequel to Control is greenlit by Remedy. Previously known as Codename: Heron, dev team has estimated a primary budget of 50 million Euro for a massive project.
Remedy will still retain their rights to intellectual property and revenue will be shared between two parties. Control 2 will be developed with Remedy's proprietary Northlight engine and devs are currently busy working on its concept stage.
To further expand Control universe, game director Mikael Kasurinen makes a return for sequel and promises to create something new. Given latest development update, Control 2 is possibly set to arrive after Alan Wake 2 releases in 2023.
Praised for its unique premise, Control was nominated for BAFTA Games Awards and won over several "Game of the Year" accolades in 2019. It has sold over 3 million copies till date and has led 505 Games to make such a huge investment.
