Paradox Development Studio

Paradox Development Studio - Strategy is our game

We at Paradox Development Studio are the developers behind successful strategy franchises such as Crusader Kings, Europa Universalis, Hearts of Iron and Victoria. Our studio is currently working on the WWII-game Hearts of Iron IV and the tactical RPG Runemaster based on Nordic Mythology.

Our latest release is the critically acclaimed empire building game Europa Universalis IV that has received multiple editors’ choice awards and is one of the highest rated games on Metacritic 2013. Our previously released game was the award winning strategy/RPG Crusader Kings II that was one of the highest rated games on Metacritic 2012.

We have been a leading development studio of globally renowned strategy games since 1995. Today our Stockholm-based studio is the center of a vast community of fans and modders, with a reach that spans the entire globe with an especially strong presence in the United States and Europe.

We at Paradox Development Studio believe in the power of sandbox strategy games – games that allow you to set your own goals and decide which tools you will use to reach them. Sandbox games give you unparalleled freedom to create your own destiny and write your own stories. When you play our games, we want you to feel that the fate of the world really does lie in your hands – and only you decide what that fate means.

All games from Paradox Development Studio can be enjoyed in both single and multiplayer where players can compete, co-operate or conspire. We are also supporters of user created content; all of our games can be modded to match your heart’s desire.
Continuing to re-invent and advance each of our game series, as well as create all-new titles, is just one way we at the studio keep our 500,000+ member community coming back for more to share our passion for strategy games.
