Control Ultimate Edition For PS5 and Xbox Series X / S Delayed to 2021

The next-generation version has been delayed, but the current-gen will still be playable through backward compatibility.

November 6, 2020

Those who were expecting to get their hands on Remedy Entertainment’s next-generation version of Control Ultimate Edition will now have to wait after the studio issued a statement today that it will now be launching in early 2021.

Remedy Entertainment said in a tweet, “We want the final quality of the game to be awesome, and so we need a bit more time to work on it.” it also thanks fans for their understanding and patience. The result of this delay means that the next-generation version of the game will not be available until early next year.

Control launched back in 2019, and a year later released the Ultimate Edition, a complete version that includes the base game and all of the post-launch content that has launched since 2019. It was then revealed that only owners of the freshly released Ultimate Edition would be eligible for a free next-generation upgrade that should take advantage of the PS5 and Xbox Series X / S hardware. Those who own anything other than the Ultimate Edition are not eligible. This caused a stir, with publisher 505 Games explaining the reasoning.

If you already own Control Ultimate Edition then you should be set for the free upgrade to the next-generation version when it goes live sometime early next year. For the time being, you’ll be able to play Control on the PS5 and Xbox Series X / S through backward compatibility. If you’re not jumping into the next-gen, then the game is available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
