No Big Surprise: Control 2 Is On The Way!

Remedy Entertainment has confirmed that the game, codenamed Heron, will be a sequel to Control.


The Finnish studio has announced on its website that it has signed an agreement with 505 Games to develop and publish Control 2 jointly. The first instalment has been out for more than three years now, having been released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in August 2019, Nintendo Switch in October 2020, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series in February 2021, Google Stadia (a now dying platform) in July 2021, and Amazon Luna in March this year.

Control 2 is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series and PC and will be built on Remedy Entertainment’s proprietary technology, the Northlight engine and toolset. It is currently in the concept phase. Remedy will self-publish it on PC, while 505 Games will be responsible for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series ports. Both companies have previously described the game as “a bigger budget Control” game, so there’s more money behind it than the first instalment. The concept art doesn’t say much yet.

“We are excited to deepen our cooperation with Remedy and continue the success story of Control together. Since its launch in 2019, Control has sold over three million copies. 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 game, and are even more excited to bring out Control 2,” Rami and Raffi Galante, the two co-CEOs of 505 Games, wrote in the press release.

No release window was given, and as it is still in the concept phase, it is inevitable that at least one of their other projects, Alan Wake 2 (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC; 2023, published by Epic Games Publishing), Condor (PS5, XSX, PC; 505 Games), Vanguard (PC, consoles; Tencent), or perhaps a remake of Max Payne 1-2 for Rockstar Games, will be released before Control 2.

It might make sense to wait until around 2024-2025, as the studio wants to release at least one game yearly.
