Remedy Entertainment just launched a blog post on their website announcing that they are working on a multiplayer game of Control. Remedy and 505 Games have signed an agreement to co-publish and develop this upcoming spin-off.
The game is codenamed “Condor” and will expand the Control universe through multiplayer, in a way we haven’t seen before. Control franchise game director Mikael Kasurinen had this to say about the spin-off:
Control is above all a world, a place for a multitude of stories, events and characters. A place where unexpected, strange and extraordinary things happen. We start with Jesse’s entry into the Oldest House, but there is more to this world. Oh so much more.
And the Condor Project will be an expression of that.
Kasurinen goes on to say that he knows there will be skepticism about multiplayer as Remedy has been creating single player games for over 25 years. But the developer aims to add a multiplayer social aspect to the world of Control “without compromising the unique DNA” of who they are.
The blog post also contained a concept art image that “says pretty well what Condor is about.”
This update comes on the heels of one Remedy just made regarding another game they’re working on called CrossfireX.
The studio seems to be busy these days, but there’s not much more info on the Control multiplayer spin-off at the moment. We will make sure to keep you updated as more details become available.
