Control 2

Control Has Sold Over 4 Million Units

It would appear that people have bought into the Remedy Expanded Universe.

This news comes as Remedy shares sales information with it’s investors and the general public for October’s Alan Wake 2 and Control.

The Finish-based company reports that the long-awaited sequel to their universe-building 2010 action-adventure game sold 50 percent more copies and over three times more digital copies in its first two months than it’s intermission game Control did in its first four months. 

Since its release in 2019, Control has sold over 4 million units, which Remedy considers a success to the tune of EUR 100 million to date. The company now expects similar long-term success for Alan Wake 2.

“We are happy with the start of Alan Wake 2’s sales. The price point has also remained at a high level, and the game has already recouped a significant part of the development and marketing expenses. We will continue to develop the game to serve existing fans and attract new players and expect the game to continue selling well.” Says CEO Tero Virtala, adding, “The successful launch of Alan Wake 2 has supported our other game projects: CondorControl 2, and Max Payne 1&2 remake have all increased development pace thanks to the personnel released from Alan Wake 2, and we expect these projects to reach their next development stages during the first half of 2024. We now have two established franchises: Control and Alan Wake, which are linked through the Remedy Connected Universe. Growing and expanding these franchises will be a key part of our future.”
