We asked Kim Nordström whats going on as Paradox Interactive opens up a Game Studio in Malmö!
We're very happy to open up a new studio in Malmö. We're gearing the studio to exclusivly focus on creating hardcore games for mobile based on our brands. This is something we have identified among our fans, that there are few mobile games on the market with endless depth and complexity, especially within the genres we're experts in such as strategy and RPG games.
The first 5 employees started in the beginning of June and they're all in Stockholm HQ for onboarding. We are at the same time preparing the new office at the center of the city with the goal to have the team moving in end of July. They will then start to prototype on a new game.
Later in the year, we're planing to open up a few more positions to staff up the studio, especially around engineering, artists and analytics. At a certain point we'll appoint a head of studio who ideally has strong knowledge about F2P and proven experience of leading creative teams.
