Gamescom 2018 - Control studio Remedy staffing up a third development team

Quantum Break and Control studio Remedy is currently ramping up a third team.

That's according to communications chief Thomas Puha, who told that the Finnish developer was building another team.

The studio already has two - one working on new IP Control, which was announced at E3 2018, while the second team is handling the single-player portion of CrossFire 2 for Smilegate. It's not clear what this third team is working on at the moment.

"If we look back, the company is very different even if we look back five years," Puha said.

"We're a multi-project studio, we're slowly building a third team. With Control, it's redefining Remedy again. We made two very linear story-driven game and again we're going to have the story but in a game that's a lot more adventurous. Hopefully, it's something we can keep building more in the years to come. I feel very good about it. As a company, we're in a very good place."

Part of this expansion will no doubt be due to the company's recent IPO. Puha told that the team was a bit worried about going public due to Remedy's historically 'out-there' marketing.

"We were more concerned about the IPO before we did it because especially some of the videos we put out tend to be pretty leftfield and quirky," he said. "We didn't want to lose people - we were asking if we were able to do that as a publicly-listed company."
