15 months after launch, developer Remedy Entertainment’s critically acclaimed third-person action-adventure game Control has sold more than two million copies.
This is according to the studio’s communications director Thomas Puha, who tweeted the sales figure alongside an announcement that November was the game’s best-selling month, a statement made during Remedy’s recent investor event. Other bits of information out of the event include confirmation from creative director Sam Lake that the next big Remedy game takes place in the Remedy Connected Universe and that there is “high-profile interested” in Control-related media content.
The Ultimate Edition of Control launched in September 2020, with those on PlayStation and Xbox who own that edition being able to upgrade to the next-gen version of the game at no charge. That PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S version of Control doesn’t come out until 2021. Publisher 505 Games caught a lot of heat in August 2020 for its lackluster explanation as to why Control owners must purchase the Ultimate Edition to get the free next-gen upgrade.
A cloud version of Control: Ultimate Edition is available to download on Nintendo Switch, however, it does require a high-speed internet connection and an active Nintendo Switch Online membership to play. The same requirements apply to IO Interactive’s Hitman 3, too.
More recently, Control joined Xbox Game Pass earlier this month a few days after a cheeky tease went up on Twitter. Also joining Xbox Game Pass alongside Control this month is Doom Eternal, Haven, Rage 2, Va-11 Hall-A, Unto The End, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair.
