Paradox is building a new strategy game with Brenda and John Romero

Swedish grand strategy publisher Paradox Interactive is developing a new IP with Romero Games.

The Ireland-based studio, headed up by games industry power-couple Brenda and John Romero, will be taking their first steps into strategy games through this collaboration - though, with the likes of Doom and Jagged Alliance on their resumes, expectations are high.

“We are thrilled to work with industry legends, Brenda and John Romero, whose games we’ve grown up playing ourselves and long admired,” said Paradox CEO Ebba Ljungerud.

“At Paradox Interactive, we’ve built a reputation for top-tier strategy games and we’re employing that expertise to help build something really special with the team at Romero Games.”

Romero Games co-founder Brenda Romero added: “This has been a project we’ve been wanting to work on for a long time, so it’s especially exciting that we’ll be partnering with Paradox Interactive to fully realize that dream. We can’t wait to tell everyone more, so make sure you watch this space!”

We'll be speaking to Romero Games at EGX Rezzed in London this week, so keep an eye out for further developments on this strategic collaboration.

Brenda Romero spoke to us during International Women's Day earlier this month, urging budding games developers to forget about waiting for college and start coding now.
