Remedy's upcoming supernatural action-adventure Control is now officially scheduled to release on 27 August 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The developer confirmed the date after an earlier leak suggested Summer 2019 launch.
Control, the next game from the creators of supernatural horror Alan Wake and sci-fi action adventure Quantum Break, now has an official release date, and it's hitting the shelves on 27 August 2019 it's been confirmed by the developer Remedy Entertainment.
Remedy's eight game will be released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as previously announced. Yesterday - 21 March 2019, a release date has been floating around the internet thanks to it being accidentally published on Microsoft Store.
According to Eurogamer, they contacted Remedy Entertainment to see if there's any truth in the rumours, that often turn out to be fake. The devs responded by saying that the leaked release date is indeed legit.
At the moment, August 2019 is looking pretty quiet with only two releases - one of them being Astral Chain on Switch and the other Shenmue III on PC and PlayStation 4. However, that could change as we're gearing up for the world's biggest gaming expo - E3 2019, where many publishers traditionally reveal the biggest news, including release dates.
Another thing that was leaked yesterday, alongside with the release date was the pre-order start date. The listing on Microsoft Store revealed that you'll be able to pre-order Remedy's supernatural action-adventure as early as next week.
Control is Remedy's first multi-platform game since Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne and it was originally announced at Sony's E3 showcase last year. Remedy say that Control will challenge players to master the combination of supernatural abilities and reactive environments while fighting through a deep and unpredictable world.
Control puts players in the boots of the new Director of a secretive agency in New York that was invaded by an otherworld threat. Your job is to defeat the deadly enemy known only as the Hiss.
On Epic Games GDC 2019 showcase earlier this week, Control was confirmed as Epic Store and Microsoft Store exclusive and it won't release on Steam.
