It has been revealed when Control: Ultimate Edition will make its way to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

It has been announced that Control: Ultimate Edition will be making its way over to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S on February 2nd, 2021 (via USgamer). A physical edition of the game will then be released on March 2nd, 2021. The game was supposed to release on next-gen consoles this year, but was delayed last month. According to developer Remedy, the team delayed the game in order to have more time to work on it, so that the final quality of the title would meet expectations. 

The next-gen version of Control: Ultimate Edition will come with two graphical modes to take advantage of the new systems' power. There will be a Performance Mode, which will run the game at 60 fps. There will also be a Graphics Mode, which will run the game at 30 fps while implementing ray tracing. 

Control: Ultimate Edition was released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC earlier this year. A Cloud Version of the game is available on the Nintendo Switch. Control: Ultimate Edition includes the base game, both of the expansions, the Expeditions end game mode, a Photo Mode, and all of the game's content updates that have been released so far. 

It was revealed earlier this year that those who own Control: Ultimate Edition on the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will be able to upgrade to the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X/S versions for free. However, this upgrade is only available for those who own the Ultimate Edition. Those with the original version of Control will not receive the free upgrade. However, those with the last-gen console version of the title can play the game on the new systems through backwards compatibility. 

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