Two Years In Control

It’s hard to believe it’s already been two years since our Director entered the Oldest House for the very first time. A lot has happened since launch and even now, in 2021, players are taking Control for the first time, or revisiting for the second or third time! It’s honestly super heart-warming to see, so let us take this opportunity to say how immensely grateful we are for your continued support. It doesn’t go unnoticed, rest assured!
Looking back, it feels like yesterday we were at E3 in 2018 seeing Control get unveiled for the first time on the Sony stage, but we’ve been on quite the journey since. And it isn’t until you stop and reflect, do you really realise this!
Today, we want to take a moment to celebrate with our players! Let’s commemorate two years in Control, together.
We’ve said it many times before, but the Control community oozes talent and nothing brightens our timelines more than when we see your incredible captures, fan art and cosplay. Going forward, we want continue putting the spotlight on as many of you as possible! Today though, we want to celebrate some of the amazing virtual photography we’ve featured on our website. Check this out…
