The studio will first oversee Europa Universalis IV.
Paradox Interactive seems to be in a good spot right now. 2019 was the company’s best year on record, both for the double whammy of overall revenue and profit. Because of that, it’s also a ripe time for expansion, and it seems Paradox is doing exactly that by opening a new studio, one that will seemingly be aimed to do what they do best.
In a press release, Paradox announced they will be opening up a new studio based in Barcelona that they are calling Paradox Tinto. The studio will be head up by Johan Andersson, a 25 year vet of the development team and creator of Europa Universalis. That’s fitting, as it seems the studios first project will be to oversee the ongoing development of Europa Universalis 4. After that, Paradox said they will move on to games in the “grand strategy” genre.

Paradox Interactive is known for their strategy titles such as the before mentioned Europa Universalis, as well as the upcoming Crusader Kings 3. Paradox Tinto will be the seventh studio under the Paradox umbrella.
