Remedy Trademarks Alleged New Project “FBC: Firebreak” Set In Control Universe

The studio could already be starting on its next big hit.

Story Highlights

  • Remedy Entertainment has possibly trademarked its next project dubbed “FBC: Firebreak,”
  • The alleged title is rumored to be set in the Control universe because of the name that implies the connection.
  • The trademark may also be an official name for one of the studio’s existing titles. Take it with a grain of salt.

Remedy Entertainment poured a decade of hard work and dedication into Alan Wake 2, perfecting it across all junctures. Now, the studio may have already begun work on an unannounced project after releasing the horror survival title. As initially spotted by games researcher @Kurakasis on Twitter, Remedy has trademarked a potential new project with EUIPO dubbed “FBC: Firebreak.

Details about the new trademark registered by Remedy Entertainment for its next project.
Details about the new trademark registered by Remedy Entertainment for its next project.

The trademark was filed on January 8, 2024, under the goods and services tag. Some tags include “Computer gaming software; Computer game discs; Downloadable computer game programs; Recorded computer game programs,” and more. All the classifications indicate that it could be a huge title. However, other tags also include music and video production, which possibly teases an arrival in other formats, such as TV or movies.

The alleged Remedy game seems to be linked with the Control universe due to what the name implies. Firebreak in Control is a huge abyss that separates certain locations from paranormal creatures in the entry. It is essentially a barrier that keeps the enemies away from certain areas. The “FBC” is also just the shortened form of the Federal Bureau of Control in the game, which is responsible for controlling these entities.

The new filing by the studio has raised many eyebrows in the gaming scene. A leading theory suggests that it is a new unannounced title inspired by Control. However, many users also think it is related to one of the existing games or the Alan Wake 2 DLC that is currently in the brewer at Remedy Entertainment. For instance, the trademark is the possible name for the upcoming PvE co-op title codenamed Condor. 

Regardless, we suggest taking all rumors with a huge grain of salt. Remedy Entertainment could have just trademarked the name for future endeavors, or as Kurakasis pointed out, it might just be another element from one of its existing games. The studio is already working on multiple projects spanning different genres. As a result, we can still expect a plethora of fun experiences from the devs in the upcoming years.
