MAUs up 30% at Paradox Interactive

Both user numbers and revenue are up year-on-year at Swedish games firm Paradox.

As reported by GamesIndustry.biz, by the end of 2019 the company had four million monthly active users across its library of games. This is not only a new record for the firm, but also represented a 30 per cent increase year-on-year.

There was a further 30 per cent increase in registered Paradox accounts, taking the total to 12 million.

In terms of revenue, the Swedish firm generated $132 million last year - 14 per cent increase year on year. In Quarter four, the company saw an increase of 13 per cent year-on-year to gross $39 million.

The titles that generated the most user revenue in Q4 were Cities: Skylines, Battletech, Europa Universalis IV, Stellaris and Hearts of Iron IV.

In January 2020, Paradox announced its plans to test a subscription service for Europa Universalis V.

Last year, the firm purchased the rights to the Prison Architect IP - four million people have played the game as of June 2019. Last year, the company insisted that competition in the PC games market would benefit everyone.
