The makers of Control and Alan Wake may have an unannounced new PS5 exclusive in development with Sony, according to new rumours.

Remedy is a busy developer at the moment and just days after reports that they’re finally planning to make Alan Wake 2, a new rumour suggests they’re also working on something with Sony.

Suspicions were first raised when it was noticed that PlayStation producer Claire Bromley was sharing job ads from Remedy via her LinkedIn profile, as well as posts from Remedy COO Christopher Schmitz, communications director Thomas Puha, and audio designer Sam Hughes.

That’s not a smoking gun, as she has done similar things for other third party developers, but according to Twitter source Shpeshal Ed the rumours that immediately sprung up, that Remedy is working on a PlayStation exclusive, are ‘real’.

Ed has a good track record recently, having leaked the inclusion of Final Fantasy 7 Remake in PS Plus ahead of time, but he admits to not being 100% sure of whether the game is a timed exclusive or permanent.

Either way, nobody seems to know what the game actually is and it’s hard to guess at too, as Remedy currently has five different projects underway.

One of those five projects is the single-player story campaign for CrossfireX, so it’s not that. But it could be the mysterious multiplayer project codenamed Vanguard, which hasn’t been show in public yet.

Equally, the game could be Alan Wake 2, although it’s widely believed that that’s one of two games that Remedy is making with Fortnite publisher Epic Games.

There’s absolutely no information on the fifth game, which may be explained if it is indeed a PlayStation exclusive. Or, of course, the rumours might be false and Claire Bromley’s online activities entirely innocent.

Until either Sony or Remedy reveal what’s going on we won’t know for sure.
