These numbers make 2020 an historic year and a record for the Finnish developer. All this was done without the release of a new game, instead, the success thanks to Control’s ongoing sales. Remedy launched the game on additional platforms in 2020, such as Steam, Xbox Game Pass, and cloud services, and the Ultimate Edition was released by 505 Games that offered players a next-generation upgrade from the console.While no new games were released in 2020, Remedy released expansions for Control, including AWE, which linked storylines shared between Control and Alan Wake.
With a record year coming, Remedy is well on its way to a heavy 2021 development. The company recently struck a deal with the new publishing brand, Epic Games, in which it will produce an AAA game and a smaller console and PC project.
Additionally, Remedy is also working with Smilegate on the single-player campaign for its Xbox exclusive shooter, CrossfireX. We really got a sneak peek at what has been in production so far, and it looks like Remedy will be working entirely on Call of Duty on this product.
