Crusader Kings II "could be the golf of e-sports," Paradox now has "less focus on genre, and more focus on our core pillars"
We chatted with CEO Fredrik Wester and COO Susana Meza ofat PDXCON this month, and an interesting musing came up. What if Crusader Kings II was in the e-sports arena?
Not that anything would come of it, but Wester notes e-sports today is where "something is happening all the time," but a lot of people watch golf, so could Crusader Kings II find an audience?
Theuniverse is nothing new to the teams, especially as Crusader Kings II is often cited as 'being like Game of Thrones' with its RPG-based family drama, but would they ever go for the IP?
Paradox CEO Fred Wester said Game of Thrones would definitely be high of the list, but he's "still on the fence" about whether it would be good for Paradox or not. HBO has spoken with them about it.
This weekend marks the third anniversary of Crusader Kings II, and to celebrateis holding a 75% off sale on 'collection' bundles through the , as well as Steam and other digital stores.
Paradox also released an infographic that reveals how the game world has grown from its humble vanilla origins in February 2012 up to the Way of Life expansion in December 2014. Someone sure loves medieval drama.
The latest Clausewitz engine is fuelling the rise of nations and colonialism in Europa Universalis IV, and it's gearing up for all-out war in Hearts of Iron IV, buthas more in the works using that engine.
Crusader Kings II lead designer and Game Director Henrik Fåhraeus confirms there's "another game in production and yet another one in pre-production." Who's on the suspect list?
