Control’s Ridiculous PC Requirements Reportedly Lowered

Back in late July, Remedy Entertainment director Mikael Kasurinen let gamers know that Control had gone gold — which is a term that indicates a game is ready for mass-production. Despite the game going gold, Control had some rather silly PC specs that are reportedly no longer the same as of now.

Unlike its sibling that came out in 2016, Quantum Break, Control will hit more than just PC, and Xbox One. That’s right, the PS4 is on Control’s launch schedule, which is an attempt on the publisher and devs end to reach as many players as possible.

Despite being without problems, the third-person shooter will hit PC via the Epic Games Store on August 27th, 2019, and Steam sometime in 2020. As an additive, the game will launch on the former controversial storefront with PC specs that are seemingly “optimized” according to website wccftech.com.

Anyway, you can be the judge by checking out the old minimum PC requirements right here:
