Control 2, which was confirmed to be the Codename Heron, will have an initial development of EUR 50 million, and will release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series and PC. It will be built on Remedy’s Northlight engine, with Remedy handing the PC release, and 505 Games covering consoles.
Rami and Raffi Galante, co-CEOs of Digital Bros Group/505 Games, added the following comments:
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 3 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.Remedy Entertainment blog
In addition to the announcement of Control 2, Mikael Kasurinen, game director of the Control franchise, gave some insight into what players can expect from the sequel:
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.Remedy Entertainment blog
