Victoria II Preview
Victoria II is looking like a game with incredible scope. It’s Paradox Interactive’s follow-up to 2003’s Victoria: Under The Sun; one of the most complex releases from a company whose entire catalogue starts at “tricky strategy game” and ends with “beard-strokingly bamboozling strategy behemoth.”
So niche are these titles, that Paradox’s own CEO (Fredrik Wester) once posted on the company’s official forums “I think [Victoria II] never will see profit (reason is simple Vic1 was a terrible launch) … I am shaving my head if this project ever sees profit.” Wester has since commented that “the game is coming along very well” and fulfilled his portion of the bet early in support for the team, but it’s a telling example of how Victoria II is perceived as a tough sell.
