Control is heavily inspired by the Weird Fiction genre. So, it’s only right that the story of Control is less about answering questions and more so about asking them. And there are plenty of questions left unanswered, even after the credits roll (twice!).
Luckily, Remedy left us with at least some answers about its mysterious world, and plenty of tantalizing threads to dissect before Control’s story DLC expansions are released next year.
At the center of Control’s story is Jesse Faden and her brother Dylan. Jesse’s search for Dylan led her to the Federal Bureau of Control (FBC) and the Oldest House. As it turns out, both of the Faden siblings were singled out as potential “directors” by the FBC following the destruction of their hometown of Ordinary before the events of Control.
