Mikael Kasurinen, game director of the Control series, penned a message to fans to give a few more details regarding the new 4-player spin-off. Kasurinen addressed skepticism about Remedy itself developing a multiplayer title when the studio has solely focused on single-player experiences beforehand and introduced Vanguard, the small internal team heading the development of Project Condor.
Kasurinen also teased more ambitious and exciting plans for the Control franchise:
Control is more than one location, character, or story. We have more. Something ambitious. As today’s announcement stated, “have outlined high-level collaboration terms to further expand the Control franchise with a bigger-budget Control-game”. I unfortunately cannot go into more detail than that, but suffice to say, I’m extremely excited for the future of the Control franchise.
This pretty much confirms that a new entry in the Control franchise is in the works that’ll be more akin to Remedy’s bread and butter of single-player, story-based games. Whether this new “bigger-budget” Control title will let players take control of Jesse Faden and further explore the mysteries of The Oldest House or a brand new character set in the same universe is yet to be seen.
Contol Ultimate Edition is developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by 505 Games. The title is available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, PC, and Switch via cloud-streaming.
