Remedy Entertainment announced that Control has reached altitude 10 million players worldwide. A remarkable success, which convinced the studio to start work on a sequel.
During the latest financial report, the study unveiled some interesting details, especially those about future projects. As for Control, as mentioned at the beginning, the title has been played by over ten million people since its launch in 2019. An estimate that should not, however, be confused with the copies sold, which have not been quantified. The latest certain data dates back to the end of 2020, when Control was at 2 million copies sold worldwide.
In any case, it is a remarkable success, which convinced Remedy to enter into a new agreement with 505 Games for a multiplayer spin-off, codenamed Condor.
Not only that, arrangements have been made for the construction of a sequel to Control, which among other things will have a higher budget than the original. For the moment the project is still in the “conceptual phase”, so it will probably take a long time to find out more.
Changing the subject, PS5 was the highest grossing console in July in the US, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is the best-selling game.
