Control 2, Condor, Max Payne 1 and 2 Remake Expected to Enter Next Development Stages This Year

The three projects will have an “increased development pace” thanks to personnel freed up from the launch of Alan Wake 2.

Along with sales updates for Alan Wake 2 and Control, Remedy Entertainment CEO Tero Virtala also revealed the status of ongoing projects like Control 2, Max Payne 1 and 2 Remake, and Condor. All three titles have “increased development pace” and are expected to reach the next stages of development in the first half of 2024.

Personnel freed up following Alan Wake 2’s launch are the reason for this and includes senior gameplay designer Leonid Stepanov, who is now working on Control 2. There was no update on Kestrel, a free-to-play multiplayer title rebooted into a paid purchase with a “strong, cooperative multiplayer component.”

Max Payne 1 and 2 Remake entered the “production readiness” stage last October, but there haven’t been any details on its gameplay or changes. Creative director Sam Lake revealed that it’s a “big, big project” in terms of “bringing them up to modern standards and combining them into one.” Perhaps we’ll learn more later this year.

Control 2 is coming to Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC, but a release window is pending. A trademark from January 2024 suggests that Condor’s official name is FBC: Firebreak. Again, there’s no release window, so stay tuned for more updates.
