Paradox Interactive and Romero Games’ upcoming strategy/tactics game Empire of Sin has been delayed, the two companies confirmed in a press release today. It was originally slated for a spring release, but that’s now moved to the fall. The pair cites needing more time to realize its ambitious vision for Empires of Sin as reason for the delay.
Paradox Interactive’s CEO Ebba Ljungerud said of today’s news:
“We at Paradox Interactive, along with our partners at Romero Games, have an ambitious vision for Empire of Sin, and decided together that more development time is needed.
This will allow us to deliver the game that our community deserves and meets our standards.”
Brenda Romero of Romero Games also weighed in:
“The challenge in making a game like no one has made before is exactly that – making a game no one has made before. It takes time to get everything right and presents us with some unique opportunities. I am grateful we are taking the additional time to polish.
The support and enthusiasm our community has shown thus far for Empire of Sin is incredible. We hope that once you’re let loose in Chicago and see the world we’ve created, you’ll believe it was worth the wait!”
For those not up to speed with Empire of Sin, the game puts you at the heart of Prohibition-era Chicago, showcasing the glitz and glamor of the roaring 20s through the lens of an organized crime syndicate. It’s up to you to pull the strings, manage your gang and dominate your neighborhood.
