Update: Despite Xbox Boss Phil Spencer claiming that Remedy Entertainment’s Control would be coming to Xbox Game Pass, Remedy are saying otherwise.
“The information about Control coming to Xbox Game Pass as reported on a recent Mixer stream is incorrect,” Remedy posted on Twitter. “We have no news or announcements regarding Xbox Game Pass at this time.”

“We’re aware that “Control” was mentioned as coming to the Xbox Game Pass library and can confirm this was in error,” Xbox corrected. “While we are always updating the library and looking for new ways to provide our members with value and choice in their games, we do not have plans to bring “Control” to the library at this time.”
The fantastic third-person shooter Control will be coming to Xbox Game Pass sometime in the future.
Revealed by Xbox boss Phil Spencer in a charity livestream for Extra Life, the amazing adventure by Quantum Break developer Remedy Entertainment will be coming to the subscription service.
Picked up by Twitter user Wario64, the Xbox boss is pleased that the game will be coming to Game Pass. While the title was a steady financial success, not everyone played the incredible game.
“I thought Control was really good,” Spencer says in the livestream. “It didn’t reach enough people so I’m glad to see that it’s coming in to Game Pass so hopefully more people will play it”

Spencer didn’t state when the game would be coming to the subscription service or which part of the service it would be coming to – console or PC – but it will arrive eventually.
When we reviewed Control back in August, we thought it was one of Remedy’s most inventive and captivating titles yet.
“Control is one of Remedy’s Entertainment’s most inventive and captivating titles yet,” our review reads. “For those still bummed out over the disappointing Quantum Break, Remedy has done well to improve on everything that upset players before. There’s more of everything: combat, content, style and story. This is the proud return of Remedy: distanced from the cold grasp of television, this is a full, lengthy title that always entertains. This is one of Remedy’s best.”
