Hello everyone!

Although challenging, we’ve had a great start to the year. The launch of Federations was a huge success for us as a game and we passed 3 million base game copies sold in March.

The 2.7 Anniversary Update gave us an opportunity to add some game features that timing didn’t allow us to fit in for Federations release, add a little more life and ambiance to the galaxy by refreshing some of our in-game visuals, as well as remastering our sound assets.

Also, in case any of you missed the Anniversary Trailer, you can watch it here:

As some of you already know, most of Paradox takes a Summer break during July, and after the 2.7 Update and associated hotfixes, the we have been busy planning the future development for Stellaris. Since we want everyone to have an opportunity to have a break, especially with the world in the state that it’s in, we’re having a Dev Diary hiatus until later in the Summer.

We don’t yet have any specific dates for when the Dev Diaries will resume, but rest assured, we remain committed to working on the game, making important improvements, and adding some new fun stuff. We will be sharing more progress after the summer!

We hope you all will enjoy your summer, stay safe, stay healthy and we’ll be back later in the Summer!
