Paradox Interactive Acquires Overlord Dev Triumph Studios

Paradox Interactive has acquired Age of Wonders and Overlord developer Triumph Studios.

Coming from this, the publisher will now handle the publishing duties for all the developer’s upcoming projects.

“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,” said Paradox CEO, Fredrik Wester.

“We have great faith in Lennart, Arno and the Triumph team, and our main focus now is to ensure that they can continue to create their magic under new ownership.”

Triumph was founded back in 1997 by Lennart Sas and Arno van Wingerden, who are both still working at the developer today.

The latest game to be released by Triump was Age of Wonders III, which has been positively received by the community and saw a number of post-launch expansions and content.
