It has been revealed that gamers will not be able to transfer Control: Ultimate Edition save files over to the next-gen consoles. 

On the 505 Games support page, it was revealed that Control: Ultimate Edition save files from the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will not transfer over to the next-gen versions of the game. They state that this is due to the fact that next-gen versions of Control: Ultimate Edition are using a new engine compared to the previous generations version. However, If gamers are playing the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Control on the next-gen consoles through backwards compatibility, then save files will transfer. 

"If you are playing the new Xbox Series X/S/PS5 version of Control: Ultimate Edition, your save file will NOT carry over," 505 Games stated. "This is because the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of Control: Ultimate Edition features a much newer version of the Northlight Engine compared to the one used in the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game that shipped in August 2019."

Earlier this week it was revealed that Control: Ultimate Edition will be coming to PS Plus next month. The game will be available for both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. The game will join the service on February 2nd. It will then leave PS Plus on March 1st. 

Control: Ultimate Edition will release for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S on February 2nd. The next-gen version of the game will come with two graphical options that will take advantage of the new consoles' power. There will be a Performance Mode, which will run the title at 60 fps. There will also be a Graphics Mode, which will allow gamers to implement ray tracing while running the game at 30 fps. The Ultimate Edition of Control will include both of the original's expansions, as well as all of the content updates that have been released so far. 

Control: Ultimate Edition is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch.
