Paradox hits multiple milestones
Paradox has hit milestones with three games, developer announced on Tuesday
Paradox released Hearts Iron IV and Stellaris in the last few months and both games were well received hitting milestones for Paradox. Hearts of Iron IV sold over 200,000 copies worldwide in less than two weeks after its release. Stellaris has sold over 500,000 copies worldwide in slightly over a month. Europa Universalis IV has now sold over 1 million copies worldwide, not including expansions and DLC. For those of you who don’t know Paradox’s games, HoI IV is a WWII grand-strategy game, EUIV is a historical grand-strategy game based from 1400s to 1800s, and Stellaris is Paradox’s first attempt at a sci-fi grand-strategy game.
Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive, said “PC gaming is thriving, and we’re doing incredibly well in a market that is increasingly competitive. Over the course of our company’s lifetime, we have remained dedicated to creating deep and challenging games for players who want experiences that will last for countless hours.”
The key to these successes – games that not only sell well at launch, but sell sustainably for years to come – is that we continue to provide ongoing support and development
“The key to these successes – games that not only sell well at launch, but sell sustainably for years to come – is that we continue to provide ongoing support and development, and remain connected to our community to understand what our players want from their time with our games. The PC platform is ideal for keeping our games updated and supported, thanks to our ability to easily share updates and new expansions – and for our players to share their creative mods.”
Paradox is celebrating their success by releasing free DLC for EUIV, which adds a collection of Swedish songs. Subsequently, they will host a special stream on June 21st, 15:00-18:00 CEST,
