Control’s spin-off game will be in the live-service genre and not free

Remedy recently shared more information about Codename CondorCo-op’s spin-off Control. The next installment in the Control franchise will be a title live-service games (or service game), and Remedy shared a few more details about its premise and development, emphasizing that this will not be a free-to-play game.


Control was originally published by Remedy Entertainment and 505 Games in 2019. Set in the same universe as Alan Wake, Control was quickly praised by both gamers and critics for its unique gameplay and engaging storyline. Currently, Control doesn’t have an official sequel, but the upcoming Codename Condor will further explore the themes and locations from the original game.

Now, Remedy has shared more details about the upcoming Control spin-off. According to the studio, the game had a budget of around $27 million and was built using Remedy’s in-house Northlight engine, which was also used for Alan Wake 2. The title is currently in pre-production and will be released for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S. Additionally, this won’t be a free-to-play game, as Remedy has confirmed that it will have a “lower initial price” than regular AAA titles, but will bring the company a lot of revenue with updates, comprehensive expansions, and possibly microtransactions.


Selling games at low prices but still having microtransactions will definitely make gamers feel dissatisfied (the failures of Suicide Squad and Skull & Bone are two obvious consequences). However, Codename Condor will be part of Remedy’s shared universe, so it will likely interest fans. According to Remedy, Codename Condor’s story will take place after the events of Control. In the story, players will explore the depths of Oldest House, where “dangerous supernatural forces” are at work.


This news comes shortly after Remedy Entertainment acquired Control’s IP. Last month, Remedy announced that it had finally reached an agreement with publisher 505 Games and that it now has full rights to the Control franchise.

However, Codename Condor is just one part of Remedy’s master plan for its shared universe. A few days ago, Remedy shared their plans for Control and Alan Wake, revealing that the developers plan to release sequels more frequently for both series in the future. Before all that, however, Alan Wake 2 still has two DLCs to release sometime in 2024: “Night Springs” and “The Lake House.”​
