Remedy has announced its working on a sequel to Control, once more with 505 Games.

The developer had previously stated two Control games were in the works, including a multiplayer spin-off and Codename Heron, though a sequel was not formally announced.

In a blog post alongside the announcement, game director Mikael Kasurinen described the sequel as “the most exciting project Ive ever worked on”.

“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,” said Kasurinen.

“With Control 2, well take another leap into the unknown. Itll be an unexpected journey. Itll take a while, but to put it mildly, this is the most exciting project Ive ever worked on. Its still early days, but it will be worth the wait.”

The announcement confirms the game is currently in concept stage, so dont expect any further details for some time.

There is one piece of concept art you can see below, of an external area covered in familiar paraphernalia from the first game.

Its set for release on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.

Control was released back in 2019 and received over 20 Game of the Year awards.

Earlier this year, Remedy laid out its slate of forthcoming projects.

That includes a sequel to Alan Wake, multiplayer Control spin-off Codename Condor, remakes of Max Payne and Max Payne 2, and Codename Heron – which we now know is Control 2.

Alan Wake 2 is the next of these, with a release date of 2023.
