Finnish developer Remedy Entertainment has provided development updates for a few of its upcoming projects. While last month's financial quarterly results indicated that the Finnish developer is currently working on multiple projects, including Max Payne Remakes and a Control sequel, we got confirmation that a Control co-op multiplayer game is also in development.

The Control co-op multiplayer game Codename Condor was first confirmed in June 2021, when the Finnish developer signed a co-publishing deal with 505 Games to "co-publish" the game. However, in March 2024, it was revealed that the game was "in the production readiness stage," but things have changed.

According to financial quarterly results, Remedy regained full rights to the Control series, including Codename Condor, as "all future Control products reverted to" the Finnish developer. Likewise, regarding Codename Condor, Remedy CEO Tero Virtala has officially left its "production readiness stage" as they continue working on expanding the Control gaming universe.

Virtala commented on the recent update for Codename Condor that it had "moved to full production, meaning it has reached the final development stage before a game is launched. Based on wide internal playtests, we can see that the core loop is engaging, and the game brings a unique Remedy angle to the genre."

This should be exciting news for fans of Control as not only is Codename Condor in full production but Control 2 will also be moving to "the production readiness stage" sometime in Q2 2024. As such, with the Finnish developer actively focusing their efforts on the Control series along with other notable projects since the acquisition of the rights, they "can freely choose the right model with which to grow our two franchises and expand the Remedy Connected Universe," according to Virtala. 

"Soon, we expect to have two game projects simultaneously in full production and one in the production readiness stage for the first time. We are confident that the good progress of the beginning of the year carries over to the full production stages."
