On March 6, Paradox Interactive will host a Paradox Announcement Show, which will include news for brand new titles as well as DLC upgrades for existing games such as Crusader Kings 3. Fans of Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 may also be hoping for a mention, as there have been no changes since 2021.
New game announcements will be made at the Paradox Announcement Show, and the developers of some of these games have already been disclosed. Harebrained Schemes, the creator of The Shadowrun Trilogy, Colossal Order, and a title from Paradox Tectonic, which only launched a few years ago, are among these companies. The official Paradox Interactive YouTube account now has a preview for the Paradox Announcement Show, offering you an early look at what’s to come.
As Paradox Interactive is renowned for its grand strategy games, which receive ongoing post-launch support, there will also be news about DLC for current titles. The Paradox Announcement Extravaganza will include details on Crusader Kings 3 Content, Europa Universalis IV, and Surviving the Aftermath.
During the Paradox Announcement Show, statements will also be made for the Paradox Arc publishing company. This independent company was founded in 2022, with indie writers offered the opportunity to distribute smaller, replayable titles like Across the Obelisk and Surviving the Abyss under the Paradox name.
As major companies shift away from the traditional summer season and host their announcements, 2023 has already seen some large shows from Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony. It’s simple for one of the major three console makers to put on a large show that everyone enjoys, so Paradox Interactive needs to bring the big weapons to draw attention to its forthcoming titles, and ideally one of those guns is vampire-shaped. This is particularly true for the announcement of the new Harebrained Schemes game, as there have been rumors that this company took over production of Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 when it was delayed, so the Paradox Announcement Show could ultimately cast light on the situation.
