As the Finnish studio is in a good relationship with Microsoft (they made the Alan Wake games for the Xbox 360, as well as Quantum Break for the Xbox One), we somewhat expected another attacking platform for Control.
The (Xbox) Game Pass Twitter account has been notorious for plugging upcoming additions via prefabricated emails. The last time it happened, the team has teased the addition of DOOM: Eternal to Microsoft’s ever-growing subscription service. Now, their newest tease is once again suspicious: in it, Melissa is hinting at adding even more games to the service in the last month of 2020.
„We even included [REDACTED] which our fans won’t stop mentioning (that’s why I sent you that .gif with the sinister red light),” the screen-capped email in question reads. Now, this is a reference. The sinister red light is a hint at Control because it has a traffic light flashing red, and that is a crucial part of the game’s plot. We have yet to see which version of the game gets added, though. It’s possibly the Ultimate Edition so that both the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S can get the true next-gen version of Jesse Faden’s story.
Regarding Remedy Entertainment‘s game, we previously wrote about how it shares the universe with other games they made, including Alan Wake (so after the MCU, we have an RCU… Marvel got competition), and we also mentioned how Control got a cloud version on the Nintendo Switch, allowing the relatively weak handheld (which might be worse on paper than the Xbox One or the PlayStation 4, its sales are nothing short of awesome) to play the game. Same goes for Hitman III, which will reward the players who own the previous parts of Agent 47’s trilogy.
So if you are an Xbox Game Pass subscriber (everyone calls it Game Pass…) and did not plan to get Control, this might be the chance to try the game.
