Well, if they leave out Mitsoda, it wouldn't be that much of a tragedy.

Who knows. We only know that Mitsoda created a lot of the things that made Bloodlines unique, from the characters to the dialogues! With someone else we might get the usual boring Skyrim/Fallout 3 NPCs...

I wouldn't suppose there's a translation?

Here's an English version. Paradox is going public.

"From here on - until any further steps are taken in the process - we will communicate any corporate communication in Swedish to ensure we adhere to current laws and regulations. Communication around our games will remain the same as always. Game plans and game development will be business as usual.

We also want to clarify that the principal shareholders (like myself and long time owners Spiltan Investment) in Paradox will remain principal shareholders and that only a small part of the company is in question for any future plans."

Oh no

Mixed initial feelings from my perspective, but ultimately I don't see it as being a big deal. I'm honestly not an expert in corporate structure, so I don't know how White Wolf fits into Paradox from an accounting structure. I'm kind of presuming it's similar to the setup of Google being owned by it's parent company Alphabet, but we'll find out sooner or later.

As for negatives, with having firms invest in your company, there are always risks there could become too many cooks in the kitchen. I also feel like EA, Ubisoft and Activision tend to rush games to make Wall Street happy, and also cut creative corners to appeal to a broader audience for that same reason.

A couple positives would be more public transparency to know and understand Paradox's financial standing and outlook. It can also help them raise more money to acquire better equipment, more staff and perhaps acquire other companies. Most of the positives as it relates to raising money is dependent on keeping the stock price above $5 a share.

Time will tell what all of this means, but I don't know that it's very significant atm. We don't know what the IPO price will be, or the market cap, cash flow ect yet, so it's really hard for me to say much. What are your thoughts?

You must really hate them to set Jack on their tails...
Anyway, in any normal person the only thing Lacroix inspires is hate for him and loathing for any job he offers. Not a good idea if you want a motivated team for a good game...

Its just a trauma from CCP who takes pride in being a traded company and look where it got them.

A questionnaire from Paradox's website.

At the end, you get a response based on your personality, as well as a message...

Hm, Paradox and Obsidian on the same page :)!!!

P.S.: It's seems that this is not WOD related :(:

Had a feeling it won't be WoD related. Mainly because the dead giveaway was the lack of White Wolf logo.

Can you people stop hoping for some WoD Announcement , it is way too soon. Takes at least a year or two for a project like that go public if its viable..

Best thing you can do meanwhile is do WoD related things .
