Paradox Interactive Acquires Rights to Prison Architect

Renowned strategy developer and publisher Paradox Interactive has acquired the rights to Introversion Software’s simulation series, Prison Architect, for an undisclosed fee. Covering all assets of the property, Paradox now take charge of all current and future releases for the property, including an opening iteration for mobile devices. The company even briefly mentions the opportunity to explore the IP further in future development, though Paradox stopped short of confirming anything new at present.

“Ever since our partnership with Introversion in 2017, the Paradox team has felt that Prison Architect is a natural fit for our catalogue,” Ebba Ljungerud, CEO of Paradox Interactive, explained. “Just as we’ve done for other management-strategy games like Cities: Skylines and Surviving Mars, I believe the considerable player base of Prison Architect will be excited to see where we can take the game next, and we’re eager to explore development of potential new games based off of the Architect IP. We promise to exercise good behavior with this cherished title going forward.”
