Update: Remedy Entertainment confirms that Control isn’t coming to Xbox Game Pass, meaning Phil Spencer made it up.
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.— Control (@ControlRemedy) December 5, 2019
Microsoft’s Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has confirmed that Control is coming to Xbox Game Pass. During an Extra Life livestream (around the 44 minute mark), Spencer said:
I thought Control was really good… it didn’t reach enough people, so I’m glad to see it’s coming in to Game Pass. So hopefully more people will play it.
Remedy Entertainment and Microsoft use to have a partnership, with both Alan Wake as well as Quantum Break. Control is their first multiplatform game since Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne all the way back in 2003.
Control is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It’s coming to PS5 and Xbox Scarlett too.
