Paradox Interactive has today announced that they have acquired the Dutch developer Triumph Studios, the creators of the Overlord series and Age of Wonder series of games. 


This buyout was a multi-million Euro deal, with Paradox assuming publishing rights for all ongoing projects from Triumph. Paradox's CEO, Fredrik Wester has this to stay about the acquisition.

  
Triumph Studios is a developer of our own heart. They are world-leading within their niche and have built a large and dedicated community over the years, counting quite a few Paradox employees among their hardcore fans,
We have great faith in the Triumph team and leadership, and our main focus now is to ensure that they can continue to create their magic under new ownership.

 

Triumph Studios welcomes this acquisition, stating that this new partnership will help the company to grow and develop more great games moving forward. Triumph's co-founder and CEO, Lennart Sas, has this to say. 


We have been approached by others before with an interest to acquire us, but this is not merely a business transaction for us. This is a liaison with a partner that can help us grow sustainably by ensuring the stability and continuity needed for us to do more of what we do best—develop some of the best turn-based strategy games on the market today. 

Paradox is a good match for us both culturally and games-wise. They get it. It’s as simple as that, and we are extremely excited about the acquisition.


Both Paradox and Triumph are famous for creating niche gaming titles, with Paradox creating like Crusader Kings, Europa Universalis, Cities Skylines and Stellaris. Age of Wonders will make a nice addition to Paradox's catalogue of niche strategy titles.
