Earlier this year at E3 2018, Remedy Entertainment announced Control, a new multiplatform IP using their proprietary Northlight engine. In addition to Control and Crossfire 2, Remedy is working on an undisclosed third game project. While we still don’t know what the game is, we have some more information on how it’ll be developed. Today, Remedy revealed a new internal team called Vanguard. As Remedy announces Vanguard, they’ve also revealed that this new team is working on new types of multiplayer games.
Remedy talked about the new Remedy Vanguard team:
The small “Vanguard” development team will act with a startup mentality within the stability of a large company. Its mission is to challenge conventions and to prototype and ship new types of ongoing live multiplayer game experiences, alongside our established and growing core game development teams and the Northlight technology group.
The aim is to make groundbreaking video games that uphold the Remedy Entertainment name. This is a unique opportunity for you to come in, and create and establish a new kind of Remedy experience.
It’s interesting that this new team will be exploring multiplayer games. Hopefully we’ll learn more soon. In the meanwhile, Control is scheduled to release sometime in 2019. For more information, you can check out my E3 2018 impressions of Control right here.
