Remedy has recently signed an agreement with 505 Games for the upcoming video game sequel Control 2.
Formerly known as Codename Heron, Control 2 has now been greenlit. It will launch on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S. It will also be developed on Remedy’s game engine called Northlight engine.
What Remedy and 505 Games agreed upon are the co-development and co-publishing of the sequel. On publishing, Remedy will be the one to do it on PC while on consoles, 505 Games will be doing it. They did clarify that the project is still in the concept stage.
Control Franchise Game Director Mikael Kasurinen said this in a statement:
“With Control, we leaped into the unknown. We wanted to create something new. Something different and unexpected. A world like no other. Thank you, the audience, for making Control such a success for us.
“With Control 2, we’ll take another leap into the unknown. It’ll be an unexpected journey. It’ll take a while, but to put it mildly, this is the most exciting project I’ve ever worked on. It’s still early days, but it will be worth the wait.”
“We are excited to deepen our cooperation with Remedy and continue the success story of Control together. Since its launch in 2019, Control has sold over 3 million copies,” say Rami and Raffi Galante, co-CEOs of Digital Bros Group/505 Games.
“Control is the biggest investment 505 Games has ever made, so it has a special place in our hearts. We are grateful to the whole player community that has made Control such a long-lasting and loved game, and are even more excited to bring out Control 2.”
