Runemaster no longer in development

Project was unable to live up to Paradox standards, company says.

Runemaster

Development on Paradox Interactive’s PlayStation 4 and PC fantasy RPG Runemaster has been halted until further notice, the company announced.

“After much internal debate we have made the decision to freeze development of the project until further notice and move the development team working on it to other projects within Paradox Development Studio,” the company said in a post on its official forum.

“This was not an easy decision to make – Runemaster was a very ambitious project for us, and the team working on it brought all of their passion, dedication, and talent to the table. Despite our best efforts and a couple of re-scopes, Runemaster in its current form was unable to live up to the standards we set for ourselves here at Paradox.”

Paradox says though it was unable to fully realize its vision for Runemaster, it will use the lessons its learned as it moves forward with new endeavors, as well as look into how it can re-use the “best parts” of Runemaster in other ways.
