- The Ultimate Edition of Control will not appear for the next-gen until the beginning of 2021
- Remedy Entertainment needs more time for the quality of this version
- There is still criticism of the next-gen upgrade
The Ultimate Edition of Control was already released in August 2020 for PC and on September 10, 2020 for PS4 and Xbox One. This is a kind of bundle in which, in addition to all previous expansions, a next-gen upgrade for the original game is included free of charge.
You won’t experience the action adventure on the new consoles until next year, a Twitter post on the official Remedy Entertainment channel announces: The Ultimate Edition for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S will be postponed to 2021.
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!

The development studio states that it will need more time for this version of the game in order to ensure a high quality standard and hopes for understanding and patience on the part of the waiting community. There is no specific, new date for the market launch, the Twitter account only speaks of the beginning of 2021. Those who have purchased the Ultimate Edition for the current consoles, however, will receive a free upgrade as soon as it is available.
The latter, however, was criticized from many quarters: If you have the previous control version for PS4 and Xbox One, you won’t get a free upgrade for the new consoles, which has caused disappointment for some.
This is now flaring up again in the comments on the postponement: Many express their displeasure under the Twitter post not about the delay, but still about the decision not to offer a free upgrade for buyers of the normal version.
In addition to the versions for PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One, the base game from Control has also been available in a cloud version for the Nintendo Switch since October 28, 2020, but therefore requires a continuous internet connection.
