Publisher Paradox Interactive has reported a strong second quarter in today's interim report for the period between January and June 2020.
The publisher has seen a 20% year-on-year increase in Q2 revenue, while also noting that its revenue for the first half of 2020 has increased by 38% as compared to the same time period in 2019.
The main drivers behind Paradox Interactive's strong Q2 2020 have been named as Age of Wonders: Planetfall, Cities: Skylines, Europa Universalis IV, Hearts of Iron IV, and Stellaris.
Paradox Interactive Expecting Delays
Paradox Interactive's most recent interim report names the launch of four expansions for its games as important events during Q2 2020: Age of Wonders: Planetfall - Revelations, Europa Universalis IV: Emperor, Prison Architect: Island Bound and Stellaris: Console Edition - Apocalypse.
"PC continues to be our largest platform by a good margin, but during the quarter we also continued to expand on other platforms: on console through the expansion Apocalypse for Stellaris and on mobile through the launch of Stellaris: Galaxy Command globally. This way, we reach more players with our brands and can further diversify our sources of revenue.", noted CEO Ebba Ljungerud.
Paradox employees have been working from home since March, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which has had "an impact on our productivity with the risk that primarily game titles which have not yet been communicated may be delayed".
In other Paradox news, the publisher has delayed the launch of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 until 2021. Previously, it also acquired mobile developer Playrion Game Studio and Surviving the Aftermath developer Iceflake Studios.
