Remedy announces the sequel to Control

Remedy has confirmed that it is working on a sequel to Control, aptly titled Control 2, which was developed and published in collaboration with 505 Games, the publisher of the latter game. The company also unveiled the first concept art for the sequel, which looks more mysterious than ever.

The announcement has been made via twitter, confirming that Remedy and 505 are developing and releasing the game together. A concept art has also been released, showing the game’s logo and the “FBC Contained” area.

It has long been known that Remedy has been working on several projects, one of which presumably will be another game in the Control universe. We now know for sure that Project Heron, which was previously mentioned in the earnings reports, is actually Control 2 and will now be jointly developed by Remedy and 505 Games.

Along with the concept art and announcement, Control Director Mikael Kasurinen released a statement on the Remedy website. The statement reads: “With Control, we jumped into the unknown. We wanted to create something new. Something different and unexpected. A world like no other. Thank you, players, for making Control so successful for us.”

In Control 2 we will take another leap into the unknown. It will be an unexpected journey. It will take some time, but to put it mildly, this is the most exciting project I have ever worked on. It’s still early, but it’s worth the wait.

More details have been revealed about the partnership between 505 and Remedy on the Remedy Investor’s website. According to the post, Control 2 will arrive on PS5, Xbox Series and PC and is currently in the concept stage. The game will have a budget of around 50 million euros and, although Remedy and 505 will share the proceeds, it will remain the intellectual property of Remedy.

The announcement on the investor site also includes a statement from Rami and Raffi Galante, CEO of Digital Bros Group / 505 Games. They said:

Control is the biggest investment 505 Games has ever made, which is why it holds a special place in our hearts. We’re grateful to the entire community of players for making Control such a beloved and enduring game, and we’re even more excited to release Control 2.
