505 Games Sticks To No Next-Gen Upgrade For Control Owners
To the dismay of many gamers and high profile influencers. 505 games has announced that after careful consideration, they will not include the ability to upgrade to the next gen version of the game in the standard edition of Control. If you want an upgraded next gen experience with Remedys excellent adventure game, you'll need to pony up the money for the upcoming Control: Ultimate Edition.
It looks like the next gen versions of Ubisofts special editions won't have a disc inside…if you buy it on the Xbox Series X.
Why they did this? We're not sure.
