Remedy Entertainment has confirmed it is working on a future game that takes place in the same universe as Control and Alan Wake. Remedy announced the news on alongside the newest trailer for Control's latest expansion, AWE, which features a crossover of these two properties in the form of the Federal Bureau of Control investigating what took place in 2010 in Alan Wake. It is the first "official Remedy Connected Universe crossover event," but it will not be the last, and is only a "humble beginning." Remedy gave no further details on if the game will be a Control or Alan Wake game, or something else entirely, and only teased that they will be connected in some form. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/08/06/control-awe-expansion-2-trailer-state-of-play-2020"] Control's AWE expansion will be released on August 27, 2020, and brand-new footage was revealed at Sony's latest State of Play. Alan Wake was referenced a few times during Control, but this new story will bring Wake much more into focus. Earlier this year, Epic Games confirmed it would be publishing Remedy's next two games, one of which is a "AAA multi-platform game already in pre-production", and the other that is "a new smaller-scale project set in the same franchise." This news further confirms one or both of these games will be part of this Remedy Connected Universe.

Jesse’s versatile psychic skills and main weapon make for thrilling ranged combat. And thanks to a strong supporting cast, a well-written script, and plenty of intriguing breadcrumb trails, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my adventure through the shifting rooms of Oldest House."
