Magna Mundi cancelled

  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

Hi all,

today Paradox Interactive decided to cancel Magna Mundi. It will not see the light of day under the current set up: Universo Virtual (UV) will not be part of this project any more.

The reasons for cancelling the contract with Universo Virtual include the following:

- Lack of progress; we have seen this project drag on and the code we have gotten has not shown significant improvement for many months. Some old and known problems persists and new ones appear with each delivery.

- Lack of trust; the leadership of UV has given a sunshine version of the project to Paradox and reacted with irritation and anger when we have pointed out obvious problems with the deliveries. It has come to a point where they claim the project is done, and the game is ready for release – despite the many critical issues found and reported on our end.

- Internal strife within the MM team; we have gotten information from members within the MM team desperate to save the project whom report to us that the project lacks active leadership. Key personnel in the project see what Paradox sees but instead gets silenced by the UV leadership.

All in all, these are not circumstances under which we can work with a team and it will now stop. At this point we have no more news than the above.

Sincerely and regretfully,
Mattias Lilja
Executive Producer for Magna Mundi

My understanding of the first paragraph (It will not see the light of day under the current set up) is that PI may take over the project.

How much time and money (and opportunity cost) has Paradox lost in this venture? I also regret that the era of these kinds of projects are at an end.

That is sad news, and I feel sorry for all of the people who worked on the project.

But if things are as bad as described above, I still feel that Paradox did the right thing.

Agreed.:(

Well easy come easy goes, let's hope that summer announcement is a good one!
Again too bad, but if it doesn't work, PI should not release it, period.

Sad and unfortunate. I little bit confusing when he says the part

"It will not see the light of day under the current set up: Universo Virtual (UV) will not be part of this project any more."

I bit more clarification? the Title says game cancelled but the description leads a little more to be desired.

In any case paradox did what it had to do

Time to revive Magna Mundi Ultimate ?
I hope so.

I hope they are allowed to do that.
Do not see why not. They can't make money off a mod and it will only add to the playability of paradox's own game. I have a feeling the team has fallen apart however.
