Our business

With strong foothold throughout the value chain and a large and engaged community, Paradox Interactive is well positioned to work with the best developers and distributors worldwide. Paradox sales consist primarily of digital distribution, mainly for the PC platform.

Paradox as a publisher

Our publishing arm handles both internally (Paradox Studios) and externally developed titles and works to develop and grow Paradox brands across different platforms and activities. The publisher’s primary functions are to produce, market, sell and finance the games. The interaction with the gamers takes place in all areas of the company, where the publisher has the primary responsibility for customer contact and growth.

Paradox Studios

Paradox Development Studio, located in Stockholm, and Paradox Arctic, located in Umeå, are the company’s two internal development studios. Paradox Development Studio is behind successful franchises like Europa Universalis, Crusader Kings, Hearts of Iron and upcoming Stellaris. The studio has been referred to as the masters of Grand Strategy and specializes in deep strategy games. Paradox Arctic’s latest release was Magicka 2 and the team has extensive experience of developing games for video game consoles like the Xbox and PS4.

White Wolf Publishing

White Wolf Publishing has developed games for 25 years and created many influential and best-selling products ranging from physical RPGs, books and card games to computer games and events. Among others, Vampire the Masquerade is one title, which has become both a TV series and a game. With the Paradox acquisition of White Wolf in 2015, a new era of storytelling and product development was started where vampires, werewolves and other monsters’ impact on our world will become visible.

Distribution

Usually Paradox signs a distribution agreement to launch and distribute the games for the different platforms available on the market. For the most part our games are distributed via the digital platform Steam. Apple, Google Play and Sony also distribute a number of games. All games can also be purchased on the Paradox website.
