Paradox Interactive has announced the opening of a new development studio in Barcelona called Paradox Tinto. It is the seventh studio for Paradox. 

Paradox Tinto will be led by Johan Andersson, who has spent over 25 years at Paradox Development and is the original creator of the Europa Universalis franchise. He will oversee a small team who will continue development on Europa Universalis IV and later work on strategy games. 

"People love our games and we love the fact that we are growing to create more for them, we’re particularly pleased to expand for the first time with a new studio focusing on the core game genre we’re famous for: grand strategy," said Paradox Interactive chief operations officer Charlotta Nilsson.

"The success of our studios over the last few years has allowed us to continually add more capabilities and new ideas, with more games going into active development and more ambitious plans every day. We currently have around 70 open positions across our seven studios, with plans to recruit roughly 200 people in 2020 alone.:

Paradox Tinto studio manager Johan Andersson added, "I am excited and grateful for this opportunity to build up a new studio in a new location, putting the knowledge accumulated through the decades of building games and development studios into good use. My goal is to assemble a team and create a fully functional studio to keep on developing the Europa Universalis brand, and later design and develop new grand strategy games."
