Were you a fan of the Remedy title Control? For those who don’t remember it, it’s an action adventure in the same style as Quantum Break. It initially launched in 2019 and was upgraded for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S in 2021. It told the story of Jesse Faden and is in the same universe as Alan Wake. Fans did wonder if we would ever see Control 2.

Remedy is going to have a busy spell ahead. They already have Alan Wake 2 confirmed and remakes for Max Payne and Max Payne 2. That’s not stopped them however as they have officially announced that Control 2 is happening. It will be published by 505 games and developed in the Northlight engine.

They announced the partnership with 505 Games on their website. This agreement means that both parties are co-developing and co-publishing the game. The initial development budget is said to come to €50 million. That comes to about £43 million/$51 million. Remedy will also retain ownership of the IP. As for the systems available, it is coming to PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. The game was previously known under the title of Codename Heron and according to an article by IGN, is a spin-off to the original story instead of a full-blown sequel. Though they also refer to the same announcement from Remedy which states it’s a full-blown sequel as Remedy’s CEO Tero Virtala stated the following.

I’m now proud to confirm that the bigger-budget Control game, also known as Codename Heron, is Control 2, a full-blown sequel to our award-winning game Control.

Regardless of the game’s scope, it’s still in the concept stage, so it won’t be appearing any time soon. However, what do you think about this news?
