Imperator: Rome Developer Team Moved to Other Paradox Interactive Projects

Imperator: Rome

Paradox Interactive have announced the development team for Imperator: Rome have been moved onto other projects.

In a post on the Paradox forums, Product Manager “DNote” discussed the upcoming PDXCON, and what would not be seen there. DNote explains how Paradox Development Studio (PDS) is divided internally into three teams; Green, Red, and Gold.

Green handles Stellaris and is supported by Paradox Arctic. Meanwhile Red is in charge of Crusader Kings III, and Gold develops Hearts of Iron IV.

“You might have noticed that Imperator: Rome isn’t assigned to any of the studios mentioned above,” DNote explains. He elaborates that Paradox analyze their projects on an regular basis. Along with seeing where they are and are aiming to do, DNote states “we realized that there was a need to bring reinforcement for a couple of the projects at PDS.”

“Given where Imperator was at in the run up to 2.0’s launch, we decided that after the launch of the update we would move people from Imperator to these other projects.” While there are plans to re-grow the game’s team to continue development, the focus is on other projects.

“I wanted to break the news now to manage everyone’s expectations: don’t expect much Imperator news at PDXCON, or any new content coming out in 2021. We’ll of course get back to everyone with news about it as long as we have something to share!” DNote also states at least one unannounced game will be revealed at PDXCON.

You can find the full rundown on Imperator: Rome (via Steam) below.

Alexander. Hannibal. Caesar. These great men and dozens like them shaped the destiny of a continent. Mighty kings, clever generals and would-be gods made their mark on the ancient Mediterranean. Around this sea, close knit nations tested their mettle and virtue against each other in fierce combat, their cultural and political legacy now inseparable from what we understand as Western Civilization. But nothing was guaranteed. Can you change the course of history in Imperator: Rome? Now includes the Punic Wars content pack.

Imperator: Rome is the newest grand strategy title from Paradox Development Studio. Set in the tumultuous centuries from Alexander’s Successor Empires in the East to the foundation of the Roman Empire, Imperator: Rome invites you to relive the pageantry and challenges of empire building in the classical era. Manage your population, keep an eye out for treachery, and keep faith with your gods.

A living world of characters with varying skills and traits that will change over time. They will lead your nation, govern your provinces and command your armies and fleets. We also introduce our new, more human-like character art.

Citizens, freemen, tribesmen and slaves – each population with its own culture and religion. Whether they fill your armies, fill your coffers or fill your colonies, keep an eye on their happiness – your success depends on their satisfaction.

Choose your approach before battle to counter the stratagems of your foes.

Each culture has a unique way of waging war. Romans and Celts have different options available to them. Unlock unique bonuses, abilities and units.

Manage the senate in a Republic, hold your court together in a monarchy, answer to the clans in a tribal system.

Migrating barbarians may sack or settle your best land, while disloyal governors or generals can turn against you – taking their armies with them!

Goods provide bonuses to their home province. Will you take advantage of stockpiles for local strength or trade excess goods to spread the wealth around?

Invest in buildings, roads and defences to make your kingdom stronger and richer.

Imperator: Rome is available on Windows PC, Linux, and Mac (via GOG, and Steam).
