Remedy’s next game, Control, has been quite the enigma since its E3 2018 reveal. There’s a giant supernatural government building, an “otherworldly” alien antagonist, all sorts of reality-breaking physics quandaries.^( , but it’s still shrouded in layers and layers of mystery.
That veil will be lifted shortly. In an interview with^( , Remedy has confirmed that Control will release this summer. That’s vague but it probably affords a three-month window — June through August — when Control could feasibly launch.
This might be a best case scenario for Control. Remedy’s last two major games suffered because of stuffed release dates.^( was sandwiched by the launch of Oculus Rift and Dark Souls III; Alan Wake was infamously stifled by debuting on the same day as Red Dead Redemption. Maybe the summer will be quiet enough that Control can make some noise.
