Remedy is looking into improving Control console performance, it’s said.
As revealed by Digital Foundry’s analysis, Control suffers from some serious slow-down on console. The Xbox One X offers the smoothest experience overall, as you’d expect, but even that version sees hitching and stuttering interrupt the flow of the game. On PS4 Pro, performance is nowhere near as consistent as the X build, but it’s much better than performance on the problematic base consoles.
Digital Foundry’s John Linneman reports PlayStation 4 and Xbox One can see prolonged frame-rate drops in sustained combat, dropping all the way down to 10fps at worst. Elsewhere, the game’s loading systems aren’t great, with long loading times and texture pop-in.
