Those who are planning on getting Control for next-gen systems will have to wait a bit longer than expected. 

On the Control Twitter account, developer Remedy announced that the game's update for next-gen systems has been delayed into next year. According to the tweet, the delay was due to team wanting to work on the quality of the game. The next-gen versions of the game were originally meant to launch late this year. 

"An update from the development team: Control Ultimate Edition will arrive on next generation platforms early 2021," states the tweet.

"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!" 

Control Ultimate Edition was was released digitally for current-gen systems back in September. Control Ultimate Edition includes the base game, both of the expansions, the Expeditions end game mode, Photo Mode, and all of the content updates that have been released for the game so far. A physical edition of the game will release for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One by the end of 2020. A physical version of Control Ultimate Edition is planned along with the digital release of the game for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S next year. 

It was revealed that those who purchase Control Ultimate Edition on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be able to upgrade to the next-gen versions of the game for free. However, this will only apply to those who purchase the Ultimate Edition of the game. Anyone who owns the original version of Control will not be able to upgrade unless they purchase the game again. 

Control is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game will come to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S next year.
