Remedy Entertainment, the developer of Control and other titles such as Alan Wake and Quantum Break, recently held a Steam AMA (Ask Me Anything), where a few new tidbits about Control and other games in Remedy Entertainment's library were revealed.

So let's get some of the bigger news out of the way: there won't be modding support or any new features coming to Control. Why? Well, here's the statement:

We're at the end of the road with Control now, and we've already provided the last one big update. We're not planning to add any new features at this time, but I hope people don't see it as negative news, but as us moving on to do a bunch new things instead!

We all love Steam and want to see more of our games over there. That's all I can really say at this point!

The mannequin probably thinks it's us who are.. wrong.

Cool tidbits from the AMA include how Control and Quantum Break are part of Remedy's overall universe (such as how the AWE graffiti in Quantum Break was not coincidental). More details on the lack modding support was discussed, and the reason it won't happen was the framework was too complex for them to do it as it was beyond Remedy's "capability and capacity" to add into the game. Regarding inspiration, Jesse Faden's character was inspired by Ripley from Alien, and the Biologist was inspired by the film Annihilation and Clarice from Silence of the Lambs.

It's actually a pretty fascinating AMA, so if you're interested in finding out more about Control, Remedy, and some info about what lies ahead for the company, be sure to check it out here.
