Remedy has decided to delay the PlayStation 5 version of Control: Ultimate Edition to early 2021 as the studio wants to improve the final quality of the product. This in turn means the developer wants more time for polish and production. It needs no introduction, however, as the re-release of Control caused controversy a few months back as it was confirmed owners of the base version would not be granted a free upgrade to the PS5 edition. That even includes those who own all DLC — effectively meaning they own the exact same content that Ultimate Edition purchasers do. This situation worsened when some PS4 players were accidentally upgraded to the latest version automatically. That's something Remedy said would not be possible.
In a statement on Twitter, Remedy said: "We want the final quality of the game to be awesome, and so we need a bit more time to work on it. Thank you for your understanding and patience!" This now means that Control will only be playable via backwards compatibility on PS5 for the first few months, no matter which version you own.
