Obsidian and Paradox Are Now Partners
Obsidian Entertainment is going to enter a partnership with Paradox Interactive to launch Pillars of Eternity. Pillars of Eternity is an upcoming RPG that was successfully funded on Kickstarter towards the end of 2012. The game was able to raise 4.5 million dollars through pledges and donations on the Obsidian Entertainment website. So you can say that there is certainly a high demand for this game to be released.
Feargus Urguhart, the CEO of Obsidian Entertainment had this to say about partnering with Paradox. "Having Paradox as a partner, with their expertise in independent games like Pillars of Eternity, lets us put all of our focus on making an incredible game."
Likewise, Fredrik Wester CEO of Paradox has said the following about partnering with Obsidian. "When we signed this partnership we called it two independent players in the games industry supporting each other to stay independent by doing what we do best,"
Obsidian will focus on the development portion of Pillars of Eternity while Paradox will handle the marketing and distribution.
