Paradox Interactive kauft White Wolf

Die schwedische Software-Schmiede Paradox Interactive kauft White Wolf von CCP. Sämtliche Rechte an der Welt der Dunkelheit liegen nunmehr bei Paradox. Welche Auswirkungen dies auf die Pen & Paper-Rollenspiele bei Onyx Path und dem deutschen V20-Lizenznehmer Ulisses Spiele hat, ist noch nicht absehbar. Eine erste Stellungnahme von Ulisses gibt es hier.

Auf der White Wolf-Homepage findet sich folgende Stellungnahme (Hervorhebungen von Blutjagd):

"One World of Darkness [...]

On October the 26th 2015, Paradox Interactive acquired White Wolf Publishing and the World of Darkness. White Wolf is based in Stockholm, Sweden, with a brand new team and a focused vision. As a separate company owned by Paradox Interactive, White Wolf is dedicated to bringing its gritty and mature brand of participatory storytelling to fans new and old. This vision will be realized in multiple digital games titles, across a full range of media and immersive live-action events.

We have a deep respect and love for the fans and co-creators of the World of Darkness in all its various incarnations. We look forward to telling our stories and giving the fans everything they need to continue to tell theirs.

Our goal is to centralize all aspects of the universe to manage it with the love and care it deserves. We’re now focusing on re-evaluating our business relationships to make sure we’re working with the best creators, developers and artists on the planet!"
