Publisher Paradox Interactive has announced the acquisition of Paris-based mobile game developer Playrion Game Studio.
As Playrion Game Studio becomes Paradox Interactive's eighth internal studio, Airlines Manager, its successful mobile game, also joins the likes of Prison Architect: Mobile and Stellaris: Mission Command as part of the Swedish publisher's first efforts to establish itself in the mobile space.
The acquisition will be celebrated in-game with a free plane in the colors of Paradox Interactive, available to all Airlines Manager players.

"As soon as we met Paradox Interactive, I understood that we had very close DNA. For almost five years, Playrion has experienced exponential growth thanks to our very talented team, and without a doubt, we’ll be able to push things even further with Paradox Interactive on our side. This is the best opportunity we ever had to improve the experience of our players and to deliver better games.", said Playrion Founder and Studio Manager Benjamin Cohen.
"Adding Playrion to our roster allows us to continue expanding our business in new areas, and bring more of our IPs to mobile", Paradox Interactive Chief Operations Officer Charlotta Nilsson added.
Outside of its mobile pursuits, Paradox is also gearing up for the September release of Crusader Kings III. Back in May, we spent some time with a preview build of the upcoming grand strategy game. Here are our full impressions.
