Remedy Entertainment has applied for a trademark for a new game named ‘FBC: Firebreak’. The application covers computer gaming software, clothing, and audio, video and multimedia production and photography.
It’s highly expected that ‘FBC: Firebreak’ is Remedy’s cooperative shooter set in the Control universe, previously known as Project Condor.
Given the timelines of the announcements of these projects and the clues that the name gives away, it’s almost certainly Project Condor being given an official name.
In the world of Control, a ‘Firebreak’ is a boundary area that separates certain areas from supernatural entities. ‘FBC’ most likely stands for ‘Federal Bureau of Control’, the organisation in Control that seeks to control the aforementioned supernatural entities.
The proposed cooperative shooter from Remedy Entertainment will see players pitted against the environment, fighting enemies taken from Control and attempting to round up these malicious supernatural forces.
There has been chatter online suggesting that ‘FBC: Firebreak’ could be a nod to an upcoming Alan Wake 2 DLC, given that the Federal Bureau of Control is present in the recently released game and that Alan Wake and Control share the same universe.
