Control Developer Remedy Working on Two New Games
Written Friday, February 14, 2020 By Ben Borthwick

Remedy Entertainment appear set to be a very busy studio over the next few years, according to their CEO in a release alongside their financial reports for the last year.

As spotted by VG24/7, Remedy CEO Tero Virtala said in their finanical reports to investors that the studio is currently working in four distinct teams - with one team working on the upcoming expansions for Control, another team working on a second (currently Xbox exclusive) Crossfire project with Smilegate Entertainment and then two other teams working on a pair of new games.

One of these games, known currently as Vanguard, is said to be a live service multiplayer game, which has "reached the stage of having the first internally playable development version of the game." The aim for Remedy is "to create a game that combines long-term service-based multiplayer experiences with some of Remedy’s unique game features." Perhaps most interestingly, Vanguard will not be using Remedy's in-house Northlight engine, which has powered many of Remedy's games including Control and Quantum Break.

The fourth project is currently the biggest unknown and is yet to be announced but Virtala says it's in a similar stage of pre-production as Vanguard. How it'll turn out is anyone's guess but Virtala did say "the launch of our next new game brand will go beyond 2020" so don't expect it or Vanguard at this year, at any rate. Luckily Control is very good, so we dare say we're looking forward to those expansions until then.

Alan Wake 2 turned into Control.
Unfortunately, Microsoft owns the rights to Quantum Break; and they deemed it unworthy of a sequel (it didn't make enough $$, doesn't matter how many people really enjoyed the hell out of it... myself included). That being said, I seriously doubt MS would allow QB to be ported to any non-Windows system; best we could hope for is an "enhanced version" for the new console.
I, for one, really REALLY hope that Alan Wake is remastered or fully remade for PS4 or PS5. Since Remedy owns Alan Wake now, it might be possible!
