Remedy Entertainment, the creators of Control, Alan Wake e Max Payne, had already announced that they were working on two new projects in collaboration with epic Games one of which should be a "AAA cross-platform game" and the other a smaller title, along with a live service game codenamed Vanguard. In a quarterly corporate report released today, Remedy's CEO Tero Virtala said works on all three titles, in addition to the singleplayer campaigns the studio is working on for CrossfireX and Crossfire HD, they are doing well. Here are the words of the CEO:
“Remedy's triple AAA project with Epic Games will soon go into full production and the second small-scale game continues in full production mode. As for Vanguard, our free-to-play cooperative game project, we have defined many of the fundamental elements of the game. Development is proceeding at a good pace, internal testing continues and we are starting the next phase. "
All this, for Remedy, is new.
