Remedy Entertainment has announced it’s entered a deal with publisher 505 Games to make a multiplayer co-op spin-off of Control, currently named Condor.

Details on Condor itself are, at present, slight — but the studio has said it will be a 4-player PvE game and will run on Northlight, the same engine used in Control. It’ll also be released on PC, Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, but no release date was given.

In an open letter to fans announcing the news, Control‘s game director Mikael Kasurinen thanked them for Control‘s success. “Control is first and foremost a world, a place for multitudes of stories, events, and characters,” he added. “A place where unexpected, strange, and extraordinary things occur. We kicked it off with Jesse’s entry into the Oldest House, but there is more to this world. Oh, so much more. And Project Condor will be an expression of that.”

Kasurinen acknowledged that fans may be wondering why Remedy, a traditionally single-player studio, was heading into multiplayer. He answered: “I believe we can create shared experiences without compromising the unique DNA of who we are, or the stories we want to tell. Yes, we need to re-think our angles, our techniques, our mindset, but we see it as an exciting challenge: What would a Remedy multiplayer game look like?”

The Vanguard team has done awesome progress on that front already, and the possibilities there are extremely exciting. Both games will be different examples of how you can collectively experience our worlds. We are approaching this with a mix of excitement and respect. We want to create something that is engaging, yet familiar, something any of our fans can jump into and feel at home in. Together.”

The announcement also concluded that Remedy and 505 Games have “outlined high-level collaboration terms to further expand the Control franchise with a bigger-budget Control-game,” meaning it looks like we’ll also be getting a fully fledged sequel further down the line. Alas, Kausrinen couldn’t go into any more detail than that, but said “Suffice to say, I’m extremely excited for the future of the Control franchise.”

There’s no release date for Condor just yet —even the name has been presented as a codename, and so is subject to change— but it’s currently in development for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC.
