Control’s Expansions Won’t Be PS4 Exclusive For Long, Developer Says
Thomas Puha says it won’t be a long wait.

....And on the console side, the game’s two expansions will be timed exclusive to the PS4 version of the game. For how long, we don’t know, but the company promises it won’t be too much of a wait.

Speaking with Wccftech, Remedy’s Communications Director Thomas Puha was asked about the timed exclusivity. While he said he could not disclose the actual time frame, he promised that Xbox One and PC users wouldn’t have to wait too long to play the expansions. He also seems to imply the decision was not up to the Remedy Entertainment as much as it was the game’s publisher, 505 Games.

“So there’s one exclusive mission in the digital deluxe PS4 version, and then the expansion pass is kind of tied to that. But outside of that, one costume, the side mission, and the digital themes, the game is the same on all platforms, and all the expansion pass will be available on all platforms, but I can’t say what the exclusivity window is, except it’s not very long. So, again, we’re consumers as well at Remedy and the core game is the same for everybody. Again, many publisher and business reasons for doing certain things.”

The funny thing is the closed-caption of the interview just says: "Dear Microsoft, we see you throwing money at Studios, please purchase us and let us make sequels to our old games, which should be ready by the time the XBox Ticonderoga launches in November 2026"

It is just QB with a female lead so be funny to see if people are suddenly fine with the gameplay...

It looks worse than QB. This almost looks like a tech demo.
