CEO Tero Virtala on Vanguard, the shared universe of the Epic-funded games and why two million sales still doesn't class Control as a major hit.
I wish it to be Max Payne but license changed hands, so ...
I think Rockstar did a fine job with 3.
I did too. Big Max Payne fan as well. Still hope they make another. A remaster would be pretty incredible though too
Yup, Max Payne 3 was awesome. Too bad it wasn't remastered.
Possibly my favorite third person shooter. I wish Rockstar would take the series off the shelf and actually do something with it. Hell, they could hire on Remedy to do a Max Payne 4, or even a reboot. That could be really interesting, honestly.
What's with Remedy and the niche games? They are good, but they are all very super niche.
Super Niche is a game that is obscure and only sells a handful of copies, Niche is sub 100K, Control selling 2 million units makes it mainstream.
The game was super niche. Was weird, blocky levels, different way to tell a story, and very obstract
In this age, niche can be considered to equally refer to "a game that appeals to only a small, specialised segment" as well as to "a game within a genre that only appeals to a small, specialised segment". Control fits the second of these definitions, but perhaps not the first. I think it's better to think of it as a cult game - wildly popular amongst it's fans, but not as widely-adored as other games. Though the word "cult" usually refers to something that has developed a following over many years. We need a new word!
@roadkillers I think the word is more unique. Weird, blocky levels, different way to tell stories, and very abstract is not niche, it is different. Niche is a limited audience game. I don't think Remedy is trying to limit their audience. I think they are trying to be unique and different to stand out and be less generic. I applaud that.
I feel the ship sailed for a followup to Alan Wake. It is a great game and had gotten the backing they wanted, it would have come out sooner. Each passing year means the window is closing more and more. BUT... that doesnt mean they cant give it a proper full remake in glorious HDR. Same with Quantum Break. That game could benefit from the updated Control Engine (or whatever it's called) and run at 60fps.
Call rockstar and get to making Max Payne 4
Alan Wake 2, I hope.
Aren't they working on the campaign for Crossfire X? Which looks incredible! https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Loving Control at moment, running great on my ps5 as well:)
Quantum Break 2 lol
People can say whatever about Quantum Break but it set up its spiritual successor Control really well. I would love a Quantum Break 2 that follows Beth Wilder.
Loved Quantum Break. Off topic, but I remember thinking that Control was going to be somewhat of a sequel to Quantum Break because I believe the actress that played Jesse in Control played Beth in Quantum Break also
Yup same actor!
Quantum Break gets a bad rap, but I honestly thought the game was pretty damn good, and highly original.
There were so many nods to Alan Wake in Control that I’m fairly certain it will be Alan Wake 2. Looking forward to a fully next gen game from them.
If anyone has 100% Control and both its expansions you’ll know that we’re likely getting a sequel to Alan Wake and Control in one game. I hope that Bright Falls and some other locations become explorable open worlds that the Oldest House allows passage to (maybe the wall on the opposite side in director’s office?). Hoping that Remedy designs it as next-gen only title too with a focus on introducing more destructive physics and elemental manipulation. I love the idea of being in a forest and telekinetically ripping a tree from its roots and launching it like a missile into enemies obliterating anything in its way.
Give me a Quantum Break 2... please
Ready for Crossfire X on my Series X
Lol I forgot that was even a thing coming to Xbox
Idk but I do hope the focus on environment destruction.
Just do Max Payne or a spiritual successor. Your engine is so prime for for a new max payne game
I would be happy with a control sequel. That game was a blast and i really like the lore of the world.
I'm playing Control Ultimate Edition on PS5 now and I'm loving it. I also downloaded Alan Wake and Quantum Break on gamepass...I never got around to playing those so I'm looking forward to doing that at some point.
