“Condor is a 4-player cooperative PvE (player vs environment) game, set in the world of our award-winning Control,” said CEO Virtala, but elucidated nothing about the big-budget Control game. We can only have huge expectations about the sequel to be even larger than the first edition of Control.

Virtala further added more details about Remedy’s triple-A game with Epic, ” [It] has moved into full production, and a second, smaller-scale game remains in full production mode.” Vanguard, the free to play shooter, is also in development. “[It] is still progressing at a good pace, with selected internal and external closed gameplay tests.
