Remedy Entertainment have announced that Control Ultimate Edition for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will not release at the end of 2020 as previously planned. Instead, it will arrive sometime in early 2021.
The next-generation version of Remedy's action-adventure Control Ultimate Edition has been delayed until early 2021.
Remedy Entertainment announced the delay on Twitter, issuing a very short statement. Here it is in full: "Control Ultimate Edition will arrive on next-generation platforms early 2021. We want the final quality of the game to be awesome, and so we need a bit more time to work on it. Thank you for your understanding and patience!"
As you may know, the next-gen launch of Control Ultimate Edition was originally slated for a digital-only release by the end of the year but it seems the developers need more time to properly optimise the title and use the full power of the new consoles.
Control is available right now on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. In case you are not familiar with the game, Remedy's latest third-person shooter/adventure is one of the most interesting and visually pleasing games of 2019.
Its story revolves around the Federal Bureau of Control (FBC), a secret U.S. government agency trying to contain and study a mysterious, "paranatural" phenomenon, which defies the laws of physics and reality that are known to the world.
Control received positive reviews on launch and it's currently sitting at 85 out of 100 on Metacritic.
