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.

    Well, this means their games are about to become 95% overpriced DLC. Fuck Paradox.

  • braneman

    Not only that but they’ll raise the price years after release.

  • totenglocke

    I fucking despise Paradox. They’re the worst DLC offender by far, yet for some reason people give them a pass for not being a major AAA developer.

  • Ax

    and now their body will be cut into pieces and sold as DLC.

  • Fenrir007

    After the abomination that was the last game, maybe they can bring the series back to its roots.

  • Grey

    I’d say they’ll ruin it, but the series is already kinda garbage.

  • alterku

    Can’t wait for the overlord to be revealed as a tall lesbian bisexual non-binary womyn of color and for all the mistresses to somehow gender swap without identifying as a real gender.
