Today during Sony's E3 press conference, Remedy Entertainment -- the Finnish developer behind Quantum Break, Alan Wake, and Max Payne -- and publisher 505 games announced Control, a supernatural third-person action-adventure game boasting the classic Remedy vibe and feel.

In development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Control is slated to release sometime in 2019, though when exactly hasn't been divulged.

Control represents a new exciting chapter for us, it redefines what a Remedy game is," said Mikael Kasurinen, game director of the project. It shows off our unique ability to build compelling worlds while providing a new player-driven way to experience them. A key focus for Remedy has been to provide more agency through gameplay and allow our audience to experience the story of the world at their own pace”

“From our first meetings with Remedy we’ve been inspired by the vision and scope of Control, and we are proud to help them bring this game to life and get it into the hands of players,” said Neil Ralley, president of 505 Games. “We believe this is going to be another major hit for both our companies, on a bigger scale than ever before.”
