Paradox Interactive announces that work on ‘Imperator: Rome’ has stopped
Paradox Interactive has temporarily suspended its work on Imperator: Rome.
In a post on their official forum, Bevan Davies – Paradox’s segment and portfolio manager for strategy games – explained the changes to the studio’s development structure, which would see updates suspended for the big game from strategy focused on Romain.
“To make it short and simple: earlier this year, PDS split into three separate studios. Internally, we call them PDS Green, PDS Red, and PDS Gold. Davies explained.
Each studio works on the maintenance of existing games, with PDS Green management Stellaris, PDS Red continues to work on Crossed kings, and finally PDS Gold maintains Iron ears IV. Paradox opened an external studio in Barcelona named Paradox Tinto last year, where a team exclusively manages Europa Universalis IV.
“You may have noticed that Imperator: Rome is not assigned to any of the studios mentioned above. Davies said: “Given how far Imperator was at in the run-up to the 2.0 launch, we decided that after the update launched, we would move people from Imperator to these other projects.
As such, Davies explained that there would not be “much Imperator news ”at PDXCON, the Paradox Interactive developer and fan convention, scheduled for May 21-23.
Davies had some good news, however, saying the studios are also developing new games, which are currently “unannounced at this time” with a promise of at least one to be mentioned to PDXCON.
Earlier this year, Paradox Interactive relaunched development on Survive Mars after two years without updates, with a full expansion in the works expected to launch at some point in 2021.
