The Paradox group
Our vision is to make the world a nerdier place.
The Paradox group today consists of both publishing and internal development of games and brands. Our shared goal is to provide deep and challenging games and experiences, with hours of gameplay and endless variety, to our ever-growing community.
The Paradox game portfolio includes more than 100 titles and Paradox owns the most important brands, including Stellaris, Cities: Skylines, Europa Universalis, Hearts of Iron, Crusader Kings, Prison Architect, Magicka, Age of Wonders, and the World of Darkness catalogue of brands.
Since the company was founded in 2004 we have published our games all over the world, initially through physical distribution but since 2006 primarily through digital channels. Paradox games are developed primarily for PC and console platforms, but we also release games on mobile platforms. Our largest markets include the US, UK, China, Germany, France, Russia and Scandinavia. Over five million gamers play a Paradox game each month, and the number of registered Paradox users exceeds 18 million.
Paradox's head offices are located in Stockholm, Sweden. Our development studios are located in Stockholm, Malmö and Umeå, Sweden, in Delft, The Netherlands, in Seattle, Washington, in Berkeley, California, in Barcelona, Spain, in Tampere, Finland, and in Paris, France.
