After just six months with the company, Civilization V Designer Jon Shafer has left Paradox Development Studios. The reason for the decision is due to “creative differences.”
Mattias Lilja, Executive Vice President of Paradox, said in a statement..
“Jon is an ambitious person with a lot of drive and passion and he has led some good discussions in our teams over the past few months. However, during the course of these discussions, it has become clear that we want different things creatively and we have therefore taken the mutual decision that it is best to part ways. We wish Jon the very best in the next part of his career and would like to thank him for his efforts during his time with us.”
It’s believed that will devote more time to his independent studio Conifer Games, who are currently working on At the Gates.
