Paradox opens a new studio in Barcelona

Paradox has announced the opening of a new studio in Barcelona, Paradox Tinto (sic), led by Johan Andersson and that will be in charge of continuing the development of Europa Universals IV, originally published in 2012, before “moving on to new games within the genre of grand strategy ”, explains the press release.

On the company website you can see a list of the positions that are wanted for the ‘small team” that will make up Paradox Tinto: people are looking for UI, game and content design, as well as team production and management.

The study led by Andersson (who has been with the company for more than 25 years and is the creator of Europa Universals) joins the teams that Paradox has spread across Europe (in Stockholm, Malmö, Umeå or Delft) and the United States (in Berkeley and Seattle), and it will be an opportunity, according to Andersson, to “put to good use the knowledge accumulated over decades by creating games and development studies.” According to Charlotta Nilsson, COO of Paradox, the company plans to hire about 200 people throughout 2020 among its seven active studios.

Although they do not only make strategy games ( Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines 2, one of the most interesting games of the last Inside Xbox , they bring it out), Paradox is known for its great series, among which are Europa Universals, Crusader Kings or Hearts of Iron. As representative as its brands is its policy of expansions, with which they keep their games updated and running for much longer than most video games; earlier this year, in fact, they started experimenting with a possible subscription model  that could replace the very numerous and classic DLCs of their games.
