Paradox Acquires Age of Wonders developer Triumph Studios

Paradox Interactive has acquired Overlord and Age of Wonders developer Triumph Studios which was founded in 1997 by Lennart Sas and Arno van Wingerden.

There will be no change at Triumph Studios and all projects in development at the studio will continue as normal. Future titles will be published by Paradox.

“We have been approached by others before with an interest to acquire us, but this is not merely a business transaction for us. This is a liaison with a partner that can help us grow sustainably by ensuring the stability and continuity needed for us to do more of what we do best – develop some of the best turn-based strategy games on the market today. Paradox is a good match for us both culturally and games-wise. They get it. It’s as simple as that, and we are extremely excited about the acquisition,” said Lennart Sas, CEO and co-founder of Triumph Studios.

Triumph Studios and Paradox are a perfect fit, Triumph has a loyal band of fans who thoroughly enjoy the long-running Age of Wonders series which has sold more than a million copies so far. It’s a niche franchise but that’s where Paradox excels.

      When is Triumph going to announce their next project? Seems like we’ve been waiting forever for that news.

      Love AOW3, BTW. It’s a classic.
