Remedy Entertainment has revealed some new updates on its upcoming projects, including the Max Payne 1 and 2 remakes, as well as Control 2.
“Max Payne 1 and 2 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,” Remedy said in a press release. “With these accomplishments, we are excited about the project and its future success.”
As for the sequel to Control, the game is still in its proof-of-concept phase. “The plans for this sequel are ambitious, and we have seen good progress both in the designs and in the game build,” Remedy explained. “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.”
Aside from these two projects, Remedy has several others in development too. Condor, a multiplayer spin-off of Control, has passed the proof-of-concept phase and is getting ready for development. Remedy is also working on another multiplayer game with Tencent called Vanguard, and it is planned to exit the proof-of-concept phase by the end of the year.
Remedy’s latest game, Alan Wake 2, was released on October 27 for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. The Alan Wake and Control franchises are connected–Alan Wake 2 has a character named Alex Casey, whose likeness is based on Sam Lake and played by James McCaffrey. This is also true of Max Payne in 1 and 2 as well.
