digitalmars.D - How much of the game "Control" was developed in D?

Quick dumb question, I remember watching a presentation by Ethan 
Watson about using D in Quantum Break, mostly in plugins and 
scripts. Now the company producing it, Remedy Entertainment, has 
just released Control, a AAA game which I assume uses the same 
engine.

So I'm curious, how did the proportion of D use in the codebase 
evolve in that project? What was D used for?

Is there going to be a new "Game development with D" 
presentation, maybe at the next DConf or something?

(asking to Ethan Watson or Manu Evans or anyone with reliable 
information; I'm not super interested in speculation)

I don't know, but when I left, it was Ethan that carried the torch, and then he left. If I had to guess, I suspect the answer is... none :(

So there's no D at Remedy Entertainment anymore? :(
