When it came out in 2019, Control had one of the most intriguing universes among Remedy Entertainment’s portfolio, to say nothing of the wider video game fiction in general. Since its release and two major pieces of DLC, Remedy has said that the team is moving on to their next big game, so it seemed that the Control universe was going to take a breather for at least a little bit.
But that was before Remedy signed a contract with 505 Games for a new Control universe game that, following heavily among other industry trends, is a 4-player co-op shooter.
“Control is first and foremost a world, a place for multitudes of stories, events, and characters,” writes Control director Mikael Kasurinen in a blog post. A place where unexpected, strange, and extraordinary things occur. We kicked it off with Jesse’s entry into the Oldest House, but there is more to this world. Oh, so much more.”
Tentatively titled Project Condor, the upcoming multiplayer is still a ways off, but it might satiate fans of Control that have been looking for more of the universe. For those hoping for something more single-player, however, Kasurinen confirmed that a concept solely described as “a bigger-budget Control-game” is also starting to take form. There’s nothing to say beyond those words, but it sounds like a Control 2 of some sort is probably coming sometime this generation.
Remedy also has collaborations with Epic Games coming in the next few years as two other projects, both with unknown dates or details.
