    There is also a HOI3 expansion.

    Perhaps, but the question is whether Paradox developed games would have grown so successful, while taking such risks at times, without Paradox taking publishing in its own hands.

    Yay, Strategy First! Are they still around? PI has filled something of the same niche, sweet sweet revenge?

    They are.

    And I'm glad Strategy First is not longer working with Paradox. I prefer Paradox Interactive/Development Studio's DRM to Strategy First's.

    Amazing Still remember when I first stumbled across EU2 and Crusader kings I.. Kept me entertained in an otherwise sad period of my life..

    Still occasionally play both of them when I feel bad :P

    It's not. they are two different companies but share an office. PDS makes games, PI publishes them. PI also publishes games for other studios.

    I think this means artfox was promoted, as being with the publisher he no longer is a minion of whoever is in charge of the particular project. Basically, he's this:



    And you should be happy about that, not confused, QA is a top issue for players all over (with most games being broken beyond repair at release), and one of trademarks of Paradox these days is not releasing broken games like everyone else does.

    You think it's confusing now...

    When Paradox first created Paradox, there was some overlap on duties. I was never sure for awhile what Johan's job really was or who was tied to what project. I think it was over a year before I finally figured out that the two were separate entities and not just two different names for the same thing.

    So...when will Paradox sell PDS to EA?

    Serious question though, are the owners of Paradox Interactive and PDS the same?

    Could sell it to SEGA, they seem to be handling Football Manager's SI Games very well... And there's no other game of a different genre so similar in its spirit to Paradox titles as FM is.

    PDS is owned by Paradox Interactive 100%, and PI is owned by Fred, me, Susana & a few more people.

    I love FM.. Have played it since the early 90's back on the Amiga.. Now playing the iPad version while going commuting to work, Colchester just got promoted to the Championship, and my young team should be able to compete in the top within a year or two.
