Update 21/03/2019 @ 15:46 – Only a week or so ago, Remedy announced that supernatural third-person action game Control would release at some point this summer. An exact date was nowhere to be seen, admittedly. But it was exciting news, nonetheless.
Fast forward to today, however, and it would appear we do have a Control release date after all. Assuming that the game’s corresponding Microsoft Store listing, spotted earlier today by WccfTech, proves to be accurate, anyway.
Remedy is yet to confirm or deny these reports, so for now, we’ll be taking this info with a pinch of salt. Still, we can’t help but notice that an August release would certainly fit the bill…
Original article 11/03/2019 @ 15:48 – The Control PS4 release has been scheduled for this Summer, developer Remedy has revealed to Game Informer.
An exact release date has yet to be provided.
What is Control?
First unveiled to the general public at E3 2018, Control is a third-person action-adventure game with a healthy dose of the supernatural thrown in for good measure.
The game follows protagonist Jesse Faden who, after a secretive government agency known as the Federal Bureau of Control is invaded by an insidious otherworldly force known only as the Hiss, suddenly finds herself on a mind-bending mission to defeat the Hiss and uncover the truth behind her own traumatic past.
Control is being developed by Remedy (Max Payne, Alan Wake) and published by 505 Games.
Control PS4 Release Will Round at an Impressive Six-Months of Games
Assuming it doesn’t get delayed in the interim and hits its summer release window, Control will be but the latest in a long line of highly anticipated titles to release during the first half of 2019.
Capcom’s exceptional remake of 1998 classic Resident Evil 2 started the year of with a bang in January, establishing itself as an early contender for game of the year.
Then there’s still the little matter of Dreams which could well release in time for Summer. And, if rumours are to be believed, The Last of Us Part 2. Although, should the latter appear this year at all, a late 2019 release seems the most likely scenario.
