Remedy have today announced that the next-gen upgrades for Control: Ultimate Edition have now been delayed until 2021. The developers made a statement on Twitter to say that they need more time to ensure the next-gen versions are ready and are in the best quality possible.
An update from the development team: Control Ultimate Edition will arrive on next generation platforms early 2021.
We want the final quality of the game to be awesome, and so we need a bit more time to work on it. Thank you for your understanding and patience!
Isn’t The Ultimate Edition The Only Way To Get Next-Gen Upgrades?
That’s correct. Remedy and 505 Games controversially announced that Control: Ultimate Edition would be the only version of the game to receive next-gen enhancements, so even if you bought the base game and DLC, you’re out of luck. 505 Games did issue a statement regarding the decision to lock next-gen to just Ultimate Edition owners, saying that: “Every avenue we pursued, there was some form of blocker and those blockers meant that at least one group of players ended up being left out.”
You can still play the Ultimate Edition on the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S of course, along with the base game, and the SSDs will likely cut down on Control’s loading times naturally, but you’ll have to patient if you want those dedicated next-gen enhancements.
But What If I Want To Play Raytraced Control Today On A Console?
Have you considered the Cloud Version of Control: Ultimate Edition on the Nintendo Switch? Yes, it would seem that the Cloud Version has raytracing. You’ll need a stable internet connection in order to play Control on the Switch, but on the bright side, you can shoot as many Hiss as you like while you’re taking a dump. Life is about enjoying the little things.
