Control Ultimate Edition For PS5 And Xbox Series X Delayed Into 2021


A few months ago, Remedy Entertainment confirmed that its action-adventure game Control will be receiving a next-gen upgrade on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. The next-gen upgrade for Control was expected to launch in line with the launch of the next-gen consoles releasing this week. However, Remedy has now announced the unfortunate news that the Control upgrade has been delayed into 2021.

Remedy Entertainment announced the news on Twitter, stating that "Control Ultimate Edition will arrive on next-generation platforms early 2021."

"We want the final quality of the game to be awesome, and so we need a bit more time to work on it," the tweet reads. "Thank you for your understanding and patience!"

The Ultimate Edition of Control contains the base game and the two expansions - The Foundation and AWE. It is also the only version of Control that will include the next-gen upgrade. So, players who own the original version of Control as well as the Season Pass will still have to buy the Ultimate Edition to play Control on next-gen consoles.

Most video game developers have been offering free next-gen upgrades for their current games, but publisher 505 Games' decision to sell the next-gen Control upgrade separately has caused some controversy in the gaming community.

The next-gen upgrade for Control is expected to offer improved visual fidelity with ray tracing, higher resolution, and smoother framerates. Control on PC with ray-tracing enabled looks absolutely gorgeous already, and that same quality is expected on the upcoming PS5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles.

It's also important to know that Control did not have a remarkable performance on the PS4 and Xbox One consoles at launch, and players are expecting the next-gen upgrade of Control to offer a smoother experience.

Control: Ultimate Edition is currently available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Anyone who purchases the Ultimate Edition will also be eligible for the next-gen upgrade when it arrives in 2021.
