Remedy Entertainment has announced Control 2, previously known as ‘Codename Heron,’ is in development. Control 2 will be developed as a joint production between Remedy and 505 Games.
“We are excited to deepen our cooperation with Remedy and continue the success story of Control together,” said 505 Games co-CEOS Rami and Raffi Galante. “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.”
Director Mikael Kasurinen also celebrated the official bit of news with his own statement, saying that “With Control,we leaped into the unknown. We wanted to create something new. Something different and unexpected. A world like no other. Thank you, the audience, for making Control such a success for us.
With Control 2, we’ll take another leap into the unknown. It’ll be an unexpected journey. It’ll take a while, but to put it mildly, this is the most exciting project I’ve ever worked on. It’s still early days, but it will be worth the wait.”
Currently, there are no details regarding what the sequel entails. That said, we do know it is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC and will use Remedy’s Northlight engine.
