Sweden-based Paradox Entertainment has today announced that it will self-publish Crusader Kings in North America on September 21. Previously signed by Strategy First, the game is the first to be self-published by Paradox in North America.
"After having successfully published our games in key European markets, we are now ready for the important and challenging North American market," said Theodore Bergquist, CEO of Paradox Entertainment. "Self-publishing is a way for Paradox to secure our intellectual property and to serve our customers in a better way."
The North American distribution of Crusader Kings will be handled by Atari, with which Paradox Entertainment recently signed an affiliate label deal.
