“I thought Control was really good,” he said. “It didn’t reach enough people so I’m glad to see that it’s coming into Game Pass, so hopefully more people will play it because it’s a game that should be played from our friends at Remedy, we love Remedy.”
[UPDATE: Control publisher 505 has denied Phil Spencer’s claims, telling VGC in a statement: “The information about Control coming to Xbox Game Pass as reported on a recent Mixer stream is incorrect. We have no news or announcements regarding Xbox Game Pass at this time.”]
The supernatural action adventure game released for Xbox One, PS4 and PC as an Epic Games store exclusive in August. VGC’s Control review called the game “Remedy’s finest creation since the original Max Payne”.
Control DLC will include the release of two paid expansions, The Foundation and AWE, featuring new story missions, teams, mechanics and locations.
They’ll be available to purchase individually at launch or as part of a season pass. The Foundation will launch first on PS4, while AWE will release on all platforms on the same date.
Microsoft announced the next wave of titles coming to Xbox Game Pass for console and PC on Wednesday.
