Control 2 Reportedly In Concept Stage; Concept Art Revealed

Remedy Entertainment has joined hands with 505 Games for co-development of Control 2.

Remedy Entertainment and 505 Games, an international publisher of video games and a division of Digital Bros Group, have signed a contract under which Remedy and 505 Games will jointly create and publish Control 2 (previously known as Codename Heron), the follow-up to Remedy’s critically acclaimed game Control.

Remedy Entertainment has formally revealed that production will soon start on a follow-up to their mind-bending action adventure from 2019, Control.

The initial development budget for Control 2 is 50 million euros, and Remedy will continue to hold the game’s intellectual property. Both 505 Games and Remedy will receive an equal share of the game’s future net sales as well as the development, marketing, and post-launch investments.

The game will run on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S and be created using the exclusive Northlight® engine and tools from Remedy.

The game will be released by Remedy for the PC platform and by 505 Games for the console platforms. Currently, the project is just a concept.

The announcement came today, tweeted out by Remedy Entertainment which developed the original. First ever concept art for Control also comes along:

On the Remedy Entertainment website, Control director Mikael Kasurinen states that with Control, they “leaped into the unknown” and “wanted to create something new, distinct, and surprising.” He also praised the audience for contributing to Control’s success.

Rami and Raffi Galante, co-CEOs of 505 Games, also expressed their excitement about furthering their collaboration with Remedy and jointly continuing the Control success story. Over three million copies of Control have been sold since its 2019 release. They added the following:

“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 the game, and are even more excited to bring out Control 2.”

Additionally, Control, an action-adventure game set in an SCP-style agency that specializes in finding and keeping strange artifacts, is worth playing if you haven’t already.

In the first game, things naturally went a little haywire, which is where your protagonist Jesse Faden came in. Without giving away the original’s ending, we would anticipate a different beginning for Control 2.

According to franchise director Mikael Kasurinen:

“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.”

Therefore, do not anticipate a 2023 release, though we may see a trailer this year. However, we are thrilled to learn that Control will receive the follow-up it deserves, and we cannot wait to get our hands on it.
