Remedy Entertainment has unveiled some fresh updates regarding its upcoming projects, which include the remakes of Max Payne 1 and 2, along with Control 2.
“Max Payne 1 and 2 have progressed to the stage of being ready for production. We have gained clarity regarding the game’s style and scope, and we have an exceptionally well-structured team working on it,” Remedy stated in a official statement. “With these achievements, we are thrilled about the project and its future triumph.”
As for the sequel to Control, the game is currently in its proof-of-concept phase. “The plans for this sequel are ambitious, and we have witnessed significant progress in both the designs and the game build,” Remedy explained. “We will continue in this phase for the next few quarters, focusing on validating the key elements before proceeding to the next stage and expanding the team.”
In addition to these two endeavors, Remedy is also working on several other projects. Condor, a multiplayer spin-off of Control, has successfully completed the proof-of-concept phase and is now preparing for development. Remedy is also collaborating with Tencent on another multiplayer game called Vanguard, which is expected to conclude its proof-of-concept phase by the end of this year.
Remedy’s most recent release, Alan Wake 2, became available on October 27 for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. The Alan Wake and Control franchises are interconnected–Alan Wake 2 features a character named Alex Casey, whose appearance is based on Sam Lake and portrayed by James McCaffrey. This is also true for Max Payne in both the first and second installments.
