Vanguard will be developed using Unreal Engine for PC and consoles. However, as part of the agreement, Tencent has the rights to develop a mobile version of the game. Vanguard is currently in the proof-of-concept stage, so it’s still in the early development stage. As such, there is no release date given for the game. This is not the only multiplayer title Remedy Entertainment is working on, as the studio also announced a multiplayer spin-off for Control in June 2021.

Fans of Remedy Entertainment have quite a lot to look forward to.
