News: Control, Alan Wake Dev Signs Deal for 2 Next-Gen Games Set in the Same Franchise

Recommended Posts

Remedy Entertainment, the studio behind Control, Max Payne and Alan Wake, has signed two multi-platform publishing deals for next-gen games - and says both are set in the same franchise. In a statement from the company, it was revealed that the unspecified publisher "will fully fund game development costs" and that Remedy will see a "50% share of the net revenue" from sales, whilst retaining the intellectual property of the aforementioned games. The statement also went into some detail about the games that are part of this agreement. The first is a "AAA multi-platform game" which appears to be the unannounced third project alluded to in Remedy's financial report, which we reported on earlier this year. According to the statement, this game is in pre-production right now. As for the second project, this is a "smaller-scale project set in the same franchise." [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2019/08/26/control-review"] With Remedy now in *ahem* control of the Alan Wake IP and actively teasing a crossover in Control's upcoming DLC, could we be seeing more of Bright Falls in the future? Or could it return to Control and The Oldest House - after all, the developers think their latest game is "just the start" for the franchise. Later in the statement, the strategy of the partnership is referred to as "creating and developing (Remedy's) own IP's into long-term franchises," which would suggest that the studio is not quite ready to leave its compelling worlds behind. Both games mentioned will launch on PC and next-generation consoles in "the next few years." Remedy's Control won our coveted Game of the Year prize last year, so make sure to check it out ahead of the studio's forthcoming projects. Control's first expansion, The Foundation arrives today on PC and PS4, and we'll have a review for you later today. [poilib element="accentDivider"] Jordan Oloman is a freelance writer for IGN.
