Sweden-based publisher Paradox Interactive have established a new development studio in the Spanish city of Barcelona. Referred to as Paradox Tinto, it becomes the seventh studio established under the company, following last year’s opening of a new California-based studio, Paradox Tectonic. Tinto will be headed by Johan Andersson with the studio aiming to “assemble a small core team to initially oversee ongoing development on Paradox’s iconic grand strategy game, Europa Universalis IV, and later move on to new games in the grand strategy genre.”
Europa Universalis’ most recent entrant was its fourth mainline title, released all the way back in 2013 for PC. Paradox Tinto becomes the seventh studio established under the company, following last year’s opening of California-based, Paradox Tectonic. The publisher’s other offices include Paradox Development Studio in Stockholm, Paradox Arctic in Umeå, as well an additional studio based in Malmö (all Sweden-based); Triumph Studios in Delft, The Netherlands as well as US-based Harebrained Schemes in Seattle.
