Maybe Paradox was too ambitious, maybe it was harder than they thought, whom knows why it was cancelled. However, now that they have some experience with RPG's, they could do a Mordheim/Necromnda/Fire Emblem/XCOM style game since it will fall into their strategy niche. It would also allow Paradox to test out RPG mechanics too.

I do however encourage Paradox to go beyond Strategy every now and then and try something new. Learning new things about games is a major way to improve overall :D

A hard choice, no doubt. But if you made such a tough decision to end this project you all obviously cared very much about, I am sure it was the right decision. For that--my congratulations on making a difficult but proper choice.

Poor marketing really, the RPG market is very saturated, and is in no need of some niche norse ones, why would anyone choose runemaster over a game by Obsidian, for example?
Cities skyline for example, is faced with a empty market left by the implosion of simcity, grand strategy is obviously monopolised by PDS.

I don't think its good to forcibly 'diversify' the studio, 4 games in rotation is more than enough, as there is still huge gameplay improvements with every iteration.
Yes, that's what I thought when the game was announced. There was at the same time a lack of originality in the setting (a fantasy RPG) and a too ambitious gameplay (procedurally generated world). The game didn't attract any interest, therefore the only way Runemaster could have been a success was if the game turned out the be very good, or to have something special about it. Given the lack of experience of PDS with this kind of games, it was a predictable failure, really.

I'm both an RPG fan and a Paradox fan, and I never got hyped up by the idea of Runemaster. There was something wrong with it from the beginning. Very unfortunate ending though, but a lot of kudos to Paradox for experimenting!

Sad, I was pretty much going to buy this no matter what. Oh, well, I guess Witcher 3 is the fantasy game to wait for instead.

Most of RPGs are fantasy and thus lack originality. THE fantasy RPG on other hand may be very original.

people like to say this, but I find RPGs are just more fun in a fantasy setting. To me it's just much better to cast a fireball than hurling a grenade. Now, maybe a sci-fi/fantasy setting like Mass Effect, or Anarchy Online I can stomach, but a full 'real world' setting... meh.

I really hope that while Runemaster might be dead at the moment, it will rise again. Maybe in a new form, but stronger than before. It really is almost indescribably sad that it got...frozen. I'd like to think that "frozen" means "stopped for a jiffy, will start again soon", although that might be very wishful.
