We got our first look at the returning Alan Wake in Control's AWE expansion trailer the other day, and now Remedy has announced that it marked the first step in something it's calling the 'Remedy Connected Universe'.
The company says it has been planning to use its games as "doorways to a large universe" for the past ten years - "a connected world of stories and events with shared characters and lore."
"Slowly, patiently, behind the scenes, we’ve been planning and plotting to make this a reality. I’m absolutely thrilled to tell you that now, the time has come to take the first concrete step on this road, establishing Remedy Connected Universe. You have no idea how happy it makes me to be able to finally make this statement.
What took place in 2010 in Alan Wake is one of the cases that the Federal Bureau of Control has been investigating. The AWE expansion is the first official Remedy Connected Universe crossover event, bringing more Alan Wake lore into Control."
And yes - Remedy says it's already "hard at work" on a future game that will be set in the Remedy Connected Universe, so we'll likely see more cameos and crossover opportunities down the line.
