Control, the New Game by Alan Wake Developer Remedy, Set for Summer Release Date

Remedy Entertainment's mind-bending adventure has a release window.

Publisher 505 Games have finally firmed up the release window for Control, the next game from developer Remedy Entertainment. Control was previously scheduled for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC some time in 2019. Today, Game Informer revealed that Control is coming this summer.

In Control, players step into the role of Jesse Faden, a young woman who has been surviving with supernatural happenings for her whole life. When she head to New York to find out more about herself, she ends up becoming the new Director of Control, a secret organization. Now it's up to Jesse to learn about her new powers and survive the twisting hallways of the Oldest House.

The biggest feature of control is the shifting nature of Jesse and the Oldest House. The brutalist architecture will change around you, reacting to your abilities and enemy encounters. Jesse herself also wields the Director's Pistol, a shapeshifting weapon with multiple abilities.

Remedy Entertainment's last game was Quantum Break, which is currently available on Xbox Game Pass. Prior to that, the studio was known for Alan Wake, an offbeat horror title that's currently being developed for television. Remedy is also working on live multiplayer projects via its Vanguard development team.
