“We are all huge fans of the original board game Diplomacy® and want to stay true to the identity and feel, that makes the game so unique”, says Fredrik Lindgren, Director of Marketing and Sales at Paradox Interactive. “At the same time the vision and ideas we are working on are strong enough to bring Diplomacy® into the new millennium which will most definitely attract a new generation of players as well as the true Diplomacy veterans.”
Paradox licensed the worldwide rights to bring Diplomacy® to the interactive arena in July 2004 and has since been working on the project. The development team behind Diplomacy® is known for specializing in strategy games and has such successful titles behind them as the Europa Univeralis® and Hearts of Iron™ franchise.
The game is scheduled for release on the PC platform in Q3 or Q4 2005.
