Control Ultimate Edition’s Next-Gen Version Delayed!

It seems to have been a delaying Friday: after The Medium, we see another game getting delayed out of 2020 altogether.

Control Ultimate Edition is important for those who play either on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One and are planning to get a PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X or an Xbox Series S. These people got ripped off, especially if they already bought Control and its season pass on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, but this version of the game is necessary to have a free PS4 > PlayStation 5 or Xbox One > Xbox Series upgrade path.

Until now, the plan was to see Control Ultimate Edition launch later this year on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series. It’s already available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam, Epic Games Store), but Remedy Entertainment and the publisher, 505 Games, announced on Twitter that the next-gen version of the game has been delayed to early 2021. „We want the final quality of the game to be awesome, and so we need a bit more time to work on it. Thank you for your understanding and patience!”, the Finnish developer team said.

Until then, you should give Control Ultimate Edition – Cloud Version a shot. Yes, that is a thing, and it is already available on the Nintendo Switch (which continues to sell like there is no tomorrow – we wrote about both subjects, as well as how Hitman III is also planned to attack the big N’s platform in a similar cloud format). It’s still disappointing to see delays announced, but at least it’s not the third delay (looking at you, Cyberpunk 2077…).

Then again, Control Ultimate Edition was never part of the PlayStation 5 or the Xbox Series launch titles (we wrote a list for those).
