Alan Wake and Control developer Remedy Entertainment has opened a brand new studio in Sweden as it really works on a number of video game initiatives. In the corporate’s third quarter enterprise assessment, CEO Tero Virtala mentioned that he has been engaged on recruiting skilled builders in Sweden, and the pilot program has been profitable. As a consequence, Remedy now has an workplace in Stockholm.
“For over a year, multiple Sweden–based talent have been working for the company as part of a pilot initiative in Stockholm, led by the General Manager of our Vanguard project, Johnny Mang,” Remedy mentioned in a press launch. “The shift to location-agnostic work in the wake of COVID made us realize that Remedy is a state of mind, rather than a place in Finland,” Mang added.
Initially, Remedy plans to rent up to 25 builders in Sweden by the tip of 2022, and plans to undertake a hybrid working mannequin.
Remedy has mentioned that the larger of its two initiatives with Epic Games (the smaller one was Alan Wake Remastered) has entered full manufacturing. Additionally, Control spin-off (codenamed Condor) and the bigger-budget Control game are “progressing according to plan.” Both Control initiatives might be printed by 505 Games.
“Condor remains in the proof-of-concept stage, whereas the bigger-budget Control game is in the concept stage,” Virtala mentioned. “We are excited for both projects as they further expand Control into new games and game types. In addition, we will act as the co-publisher for Condor, which enables us to build more commercial capabilities and strengthen our position in the value chain.”
