Remedy Entertainment has revealed that it has signed a co-development and co-publishing agreement with 505 Games for Control 2, a “full-blown sequel” to the original release. Control 2 had previously been known as “Codename Heron.” It is to be a “bigger-budget Control game.”
Control 2 confirmed to be in development with 505 Games as co-publisher
The deal between Remedy Entertainment and 505 Games was confirmed in a press release. The piece explains how Control 2’s initial development budget is €50 million and that it will be built using Remedy’s proprietary Northlight engine and tools.
Control 2 will be targeting current-gen hardware including PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. 505 Games will publish Control 2 on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, while Remedy will publish the game on PC.
Neither PS4 nor Xbox One are mentioned in the press release, which likely means that the game is being developed exclusively for current-gen systems. There is also no mention of a Nintendo Switch cloud version, despite the first game being available in that way.
Remedy Entertainment is also working on Alan Wake 2, though the developer canceled plans to show it off during the summer.
