Other News

Rumors that Tencent purchased Bohemia Interactive are untrue. That’s according to the independent studio, which released a statement to clarify that it was not, in fact, being acquired.

“We were talking to numerous potential partners in the past about possible strategic cooperation, and we may do so in the future as well. But as of now, we remain an independent studio,” the company’s CEO said.

In other industry news, Paradox Interactive secured a collective bargaining agreement with its workers in Sweden. In an unusual move – at least in the US, where companies are typically hostile to union organizing efforts – the company touted the new agreement in a press release.

“We’re proud, both as a Swedish company and as a member of the games industry, to add our name to the roster of companies who support unionization,” said Marina Hedman, Paradox’s head of human resources.
