The Remedy Connected Universe will kick off with Control‘s AWE expansion later this month, though Remedy has already confirmed that a new game will continue on the world shared by Control and Alan Wake.
The news comes straight from Remedy’s Sam Lake, who’s taken to a blog post to share what’s next from the studio.
“For over 10 years, we’ve had a crazy dream. The idea that the tales told in some of our games would be connected to each other, a connected world of stories and events with shared characters and lore. Each game is a stand-alone experience, but each game is also a doorway into a larger universe with exciting opportunities for crossover events.”
Just for some perspective: Alan Wake’s ten year anniversary occured back in May 2020.
“Slowly, patiently, behind the scenes, we’ve been planning and plotting to make this a reality,” Lake continued. “I’m absolutely thrilled to tell you that now, the time has come to take the first concrete step on this road, establishing Remedy Connected Universe. You have no idea how happy it makes me to be able to finally make this statement.
“What took place in 2010 in Alan Wake is one of the cases that the Federal Bureau of Control has been investigating. The AWE expansion is the first official Remedy Connected Universe crossover event, bringing more Alan Wake lore into Control.”
Lake concludes the post by confirming that “we’re already hard at work on a future Remedy game that also takes place in this same universe.”
Control is available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4. AWE will be available from 27 August, part of the game’s Season Pass, Digital Deluxe version or purchasable for $14.99 USD. Alan Wake is currently avaiable on Xbox One (via Xbox 360 backwards compatibility) and Windows PC.
