Remedy Entertainment has signed an agreement with 505 Games for a new 4-player cooperative PvE (player vs. environment) game, codenamed Condor. Condor will be a spin-off of Control, and will be using Remedy’s proprietary Northlight Engine and tools.
Rami and Raffi Galante, co-CEOs of Digital Bros Group, said:
“We are excited to continue and further expand our collaboration with Remedy. With over 2 million copies sold and revenue exceeding EUR 70 million, Control is an extremely successful game. As a multiplayer game, Condor has the potential to engage the gaming community in the long run. It will also contribute to 505 Games’ product revenue stream longer than traditional games.”
There is currently no ETA on when Condor will come out. However, 505 Games stated that it will hit all current-gen platforms.
In addition, 505 Games and Remedy Entertainment have outlined high-level collaboration terms to further expand the Control franchise with a bigger-budget Control-game. 505 Games will reveal more details about this new Control game in the future.
Tero Virtala, CEO of Remedy Entertainment, also added:
“We have successfully collaborated with 505 Games for over four years and have both become stronger in our respective fields. We are happy to extend and deepen our partnership. This new agreement supports Remedy’s aims to expand our games into long-term franchises, create benchmark-setting games, strengthen our commercial capabilities and collaborate with great partners with whom we can succeed together.”

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
