Control Won’t Support Free Next-Gen Upgrades on PS5 and Xbox Series X

Only those who purchase the Ultimate Edition on current-gen consoles will get the next-gen versions for free.

Free next-gen ugrades for games that will be available on the PS4 and Xbox One as well as their upcoming successors is something that we’ve been seeing a lot of. There have, however, definitely been some outliers that are not offering that option, and another major game has now joined that list.

Remedy Entertainment announced last month that Control would be coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X. Just recently, they also announced an Ultimate Edition for the game, coming to Steam later this month and then to PS4, Xbox One, and Epic Games Store two weeks after that. Alongside that, however, they’ve also confirmed that Control won’t offer free upgrades to its PS5 and Xbox Series X versions for those who have (or get) the game on PS4 or Xbox One.

To be more specific, if you purchase Control: Ultimate Edition, you will get free access to the game’s PS5 / Xbox Series X version (depending on what current-gen platform you buy the game on, of course)- but for anyone who already has the game or doesn’t buy the Ultimate Edition, free next-gen upgrades won’t be available.

Control’s second expansion, AWE, will be releasing on August 27, featuring a crossover with Remedy’s 2010 horror game, Alan Wake. The first fifteen minutes of the expansion will be streamed tomorrow.

Remedy Entertainment recently also confirmed that they have started working on their next game, which will also be set in the larger connected universe of Control and Alan Wake.
