Paradox Interactive includes both a publishing and development division, which are known, among other things, for some strategy and simulation.
Known titles include, for example, Stellaris, Europe Universalis, Hearts of Iron, Crusader Kings, Cities: Skylines, Surviving Mars, Prison Architect, Magicka, Age of Wonders and World of Darkness.
With the recently published annual report (via VGC) for the calendar year 2019, corporate CEO Ebba Ljungerud announced that more than 12 million players have played paradox titles per month. This apparently shows itself in the revenue that has grown by 14 percent to about $ 130 million. The pre-tax profit grew by about three percent compared to the previous year.
Great investment in the future
In 2019, Paradox published the strategy title Emperor: Rome, Age of Wonders: Planetfall and Surviving The Aftermath, while according to Ljungerud, mainly investments in the future of the company. The only weak profit already indicates that a lot of money was used for game development and marketing.
In the past twelve months, we have invested more than ever in the game development as well as in marketing and organization, she said. Only a small part of this year’s investment was based on games that have been launched in 2019 and generated revenue.
Further, she explained: Instead, it is investment in future projects, i. Games that we will launch in the coming years and with which we want to earn revenue. +
