Over the last period, Paradox Interactive expressed their interest in several promising indie studios, acquiring BattleTech and Age of Wonders developers, Harebrained Schemes and Triumph Studios respectively. These are mainly strategy games’ developers, which coincides with the studio’s recent hiring. DOOM designer John Romero and his wife announced they are currently working on a new strategy IP under Paradox Interactive.
Paradox CEO Ebba Ljungerud expressed his enthusiasm to work with two industry veterans in developing strategy titles.
“We are thrilled to work with industry legends, Brenda and John Romero, whose games we’ve grown up playing and long admired. At Paradox Interactive, we’ve built a reputation for top-tier strategy games and we’re employing that expertise to build something really special with the team at Romero Games.”
John’s wife, Brenda Romero, shared her thoughts on the collaboration, and teased it was a project they wanted to work on “for a long time.”
“This has been a project we’ve been wanting to work on for a long time, so it’s especially exciting that we’ll be partnering with Paradox Interactive to fully realize that dream. We can’t wait to tell everyone more, so make sure you watch this space!”
