During the State of Play on August 6, AWE (Altered World Events), the next expansion for Remedy’s Control game, was surprised to bring back another character from the studio, namely Alan Wake, hero of the eponymous game released for the first time in 2010 on Xbox 360. Indeed, in this new extension, Jesse Faden will learn more about the disappearance of the writer. Obviously, this choice on the part of Remedy is not trivial.
It seems that the Finnish studio, like the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), intends to set up the RCU (Remedy Connected Universe) and the AWE extension of Control would be the first step in this long transition for the dads of Max Payne. When the last trailer for the future expansion of Control was released, in an article offered directly on the official site of the game, it was possible to see the following information:
What if there really was a plan in place for over a decade for how some of our games are connected? A Remedy Connected Universe, if you will …
Today, there is no more room for guesswork since the “what if” equation has disappeared to make way for statements from Sam Lake, the studio’s creative director.
For over 10 years, we have had a crazy dream. The idea that the stories told in some of our games would be connected to each other, a connected world of stories and events with shared characters and traditions. Each game is a standalone experience, but each game is also a gateway to a larger universe with exciting opportunities for crossover events. Slowly, patiently, behind the scenes, we planned and plotted to make this a reality. I am absolutely delighted to tell you that now is the time to take the first concrete step on this road, by establishing the Remedy Connected Universe. You have no idea how happy I am to finally be able to make this statement. Sam Lake, Creative Director of Remedy
In addition to the future meeting between Alan Wake and Jesse Faden, it is very likely that we will find the hero of the saga in the years to come Quantum Break in Control, but that’s not all … Sam Lake took advantage of this event to announce another great news. The studio’s next game is already in development and it will take place directly in this Remedy Connected Universe.
