Paradox Interactive Acquires Harebrained Schemes

Paradox Interactive have announced they have acquired Harebrained Schemes, LLC for an undisclosed amount. Founded in 2011, Harebrained Schemes are best known for Shadowrun, Necropolis, Golem Arcana, and the upcoming BattleTech.

Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive, said in the press release:

“Harebrained Schemes have proven themselves as a world-class studio with a very talented team within a genre where Paradox wants to be present. In addition, we really like the studio, the people who run it, and their games; these are all absolute hard criteria for us in any acquisition. Our recent successful launch of BATTLETECH, our first project together, has been a fantastic collaboration, but the possibilities of what we can do together in the long term now that we’ve joined forces – that’s what has us truly excited.”

 

Harebrained Schemes’ President  Mitch Gitelman also stated:

“Our experience working with Paradox on BATTLETECH was the best of our careers and proved to us that this was a company we would be proud to be a part of. What’s more, we’ve gotten to experience the incredible audience that Paradox has firsthand: the fans who we met at PDXCON in May after having launched our game were so full of enthusiasm and appreciation. We share a deep respect for our audiences, for healthy and collaborative teams, and for the creative process itself – the fit just works.”
