Damn ! I almost bought Control for PS4 a couple days ago, glad I didn't :P.

Also doesn't this pretty much confirm we're not getting enhanced patches for our existing backwards compatible games?

They're making the single player campaign, yeah.
Gotcha, that makes sense. That makes me a little more excited for the game then, as Remedy makes pretty good narratives in my opinion
was Crossfire that cringy game that was shown at MS's E3 show last year?
I'm not sure whether it was "that cringey game". It is Asia's biggest multiplayer fps game, bigger than CS or COD, but almost no US players as far as I know....

Publishing exclusivity on Control as in the first game or the whole IP?
Actually it might just be for the game, not the IP? Not sure. Idk if 505 Games would make a deal for just the game would they?

"505 Games, a Digital Bros subsidiary, secures exclusive 20 year rights to the next game from Remedy Entertainment, renowned developer of AAA video games franchises, with an investment of €7.75 million."

I mean we could still get them. But it will probably be very limiting stuff like just higher resolutions or framerates. Next gen port will probably be Remastered/GOTY-like Port with further enhancements and Ray tracing.

I think they could offer upgrades like they did with PS3/PS4. Only it will be more successful since the digital market is bigger than before.

Alan Wake 2 was pitched to multiple publishers, you can easily Google this. Just because 505 Games has publishing rights to Control doesn't necessarily mean they have full control over sequels, they probably have the right to first refusal and nothing more.
I believe MS had right of first refusal for the sequel and once MS passed on a sequel pitch, then Remedy was open to pitch to other publishers. Now Remedy has the publishing rights to the Alan Wake game MS funded and can self publish or make a deal with another publisher to publish the game on any platform.

they will obviously try to port control with raytracing to console. It has a big impact on the visuals of the game, I am not sure consoles can handle it though. It would be interesting to see how they optimize these things. RTX on PC is probably not that optimized right now.

I'm glad to hear they're getting plenty of work. Being a large independent developer in the modern market is incredibly challenging.
