in Official blog post Published last year, Control Game Director Mikael Kasurinen tried to allay any concerns Remedy fans might have about the studio taking a rare adventure in multiplayer.

“We knew there would be skepticism about multiplayer. But I think we can create shared experiences without compromising the unique DNA of who we are, or the stories we want to tell,” Kasurinen explained.

“Yes, we need to rethink our angles, our techniques, our mentality, but we see it as an exciting challenge: what would Remedy’s multiplayer look like?

“The Vanguard team has made great progress on this front already, and the potential there is very exciting. Both games [Control and Condor] They would be different examples of how our worlds collectively experience.

“We approach this with a mixture of excitement and respect. We want to create something inviting yet familiar, something any of our fans can jump into and feel right at home together.”
