The team behind the hit action-adventure Control is apparently very busy these days. Remedy Entertainment has confirmed that it has a new game in the early stages of development, marking its sixth project in the works. Remedy did not provide any details on the new project, but we do know that the team is also working on Vanguard, CrossfireX, Crossfire HD, and two more.
As IGN reported, Remedy CEO Tero Virtala revealed in a recent Q1 business review that the developer has started to work on other projects after Control. Virtala indicated that the team had a few projects in the works, including “a new, exciting early-phase project.”
Unfortunately, Virtala could not say much else about Remedy Entertainment’s new game, other than confirming that it is separate from previously announced titles. “It is in very, very early stages,” he reiterated.
Remedy hasn’t had any major releases since Control in 2019. The studio released some DLC for the game and a new edition last year, but no other titles. Now, it seems Remedy is picking up the pace. Of course, the six projects may have something to do with the major growth that the company has seen recently. As Virtala noted, the studio now has 281 employees.
“We have continued to advance across many dimensions: production capabilities, Northlight technology, people, teams, and ways of working,” he said. “We continue to advance our commercial skills and, together with our publishing partners, are preparing the 2021 game launches.”
Remedy Entertainment’s lineup for 2021 and beyond
In addition to teasing the new game, Remedy provided an update on its other upcoming releases. The next installments in the Crossfire series, CrossfireX and Crossfire HD, are both receiving their final single-player tweaks before release later this year. Meanwhile, the team is moving to the next development stage on its free-to-play game, Vanguard. Finally, Remedy has both a AAA project and a “smaller-scale game” in the works for Epic Games. These titles remain unannounced, but fans have wondered if they may finally see a sequel to 2010’s Alan Wake.
The remainder of 2021 is slated to be a big deal for Remedy, so fans should stay tuned.
