Last year saw the release of Control, a game that was, in many ways, the accumulation of Remedy Entertainment’s previous work. There were some doubts about how the title performed, however, as it seemed conflicting statements came from the developer and publisher 505 Games’ parent company, Digital Bros. Well, it seems the game has helped Digital Bros out big time regardless of their expectations.

Digital Bros released their latest quarterly report for the period ending in March 31st of this year. Their overall gaming revenue more than doubled, in big part thanks to Control, earning €99.1 million in gross revenue that translates to a staggering increase of 132% year over year. While it was not just a one game show as other titles from 505 Games were released in this period, namely Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, Indivisible and Journey to the Savage Planet, Control pulled in the lion’s share with €30 million in revenue between its launch and the end of this period. It’s unclear if the various exclusive deals is also factored into that. For a fuller picture, the game generated €17.7 million in its first month.

Tucked away in the report it’s also confirmed that the game will finally see a release on Steam after a year long exclusive period to the Epic Games Store. Another major DLC is also planned, but no date has been set as of yet.
