Remedy Announced Control Spin-Off, And It’s Multiplayer

Rem­e­dy, devel­op­er of Con­trol and Alan Wake, has announced a new mul­ti­play­er-focused Con­trol spin-off. It’s titled as Project Con­dor and is being devel­oped for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

The game was announced as part of a new pub­lish­ing deal with 505 Games, the orig­i­nal pub­lish­ers of Con­trol in 2018. Rem­e­dy now con­sid­ers Con­trol a fran­chise, with this new mul­ti­play­er title the first in a series of sto­ries out­side of The Old­est House and that of Jesse. In a blog post, Con­trol’s fran­chise direc­tor, Mikael Kasuri­nen explains that the world the team has cre­at­ed is prime for more sto­ries to be told.

Con­trol is first and fore­most a world, a place for mul­ti­tudes of sto­ries, events, and char­ac­ters,” explained Kasuri­nen. “A place where unex­pect­ed, strange, and extra­or­di­nary things occur. We kicked it off with Jesse’s entry into the Old­est House, but there is more to this world. Oh, so much more.”

Kasuri­nen also acknowl­edged that the stu­dio has a his­to­ry of cre­at­ing sin­gle-play­er expe­ri­ences, and that there is like­ly skep­ti­cism on this new direc­tion for Con­trol. He fur­ther explains that this will be a chal­lenge for the stu­dio, but one they’ve want­ed to pur­sue for quite some time.

We get that there is going to be skep­ti­cism about mul­ti­play­er,” Kasuri­nen con­tin­ued. “But I believe we can cre­ate shared expe­ri­ences with­out com­pro­mis­ing the unique DNA of who we are, or the sto­ries we want to tell. Yes, we need to re-think our angles, our tech­niques, our mind­set, but we see it as an excit­ing chal­lenge: What would a Rem­e­dy mul­ti­play­er game look like?”

Kasuri­nen end­ed his state­ment by say­ing it will be some time out before this game is revealed to the pub­lic, but he reminds fans that the stu­dio is already work­ing on oth­er projects. Name­ly the sin­gle-play­er mode the pop­u­lar online shoot­er, Cross­fire. He added that a new, big-bud­get Con­trol game that’s cur­rent­ly being planned as well.
