Control 2 and Max Payne Remakes Coming Soon
In a recent press release from Remedy, CEO Tero Virtala delivered an update on Remedy’s future line-up following the release of Alan Wake 2. In it, he states the following:
“Control 2 continues in the proof-of-concept stage. The plans for this sequel are ambitious, and we have seen good progress both in the designs and in the game build. We will continue at this stage for the next few quarters. We focus on proving the identified key elements before moving to the next stage and scaling up the team.
“Condor, a co-operative multiplayer game, has progressed from the proof-of-concept to the production readiness stage. We have acquired valuable insights into developing service-based games and are now in a better position to create a game players can engage with for years.
“In Codename Vanguard we are defining the next stages of the project with our publishing partner. At the same time the project is aiming towards completing the proof-of-concept stage by the end of the year.
“Max Payne 1&2 remake progressed into the production readiness stage. We have gained clarity on the style and scope of the game, and we have an exceptionally well-organized team working on it. With these accomplishments, we are excited about the project and its future success.”
Based on Remedy’s update, the remakes for Max Payne 1&2, Condor, and Codename Vanguard are likely the company’s next release. Control 2 will likely release at some point in 2025-2026. At the time of writing, an Alan Wake 3 has not yet been confirmed, but more details will likely surface soon.
Lastly, Alan Wake 2 is available now on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via the Epic Games Store. DLC for the game will be released in the coming months.
