Paradox Development Studio has released the first video in a series of upcoming content regarding the development of Crusader Kings III.
Henrik Fåhraeus, the Game Director for Crusader Kings III, discusses his history with the franchise and what he hopes to achieve with the next installment of the grand strategy game.
”Future installments of this video series will include summaries of information revealed in the previous month’s Developer Diaries so people can follow along with the game’s development. Crusader Kings III is the sequel to Paradox’s beloved medieval strategy role-playing game. It was announced last month at the annual Paradox Convention and is scheduled for release in 2020.”
The Crusader Kings franchise debuted in 2004 and received average reviews. The 2004 introductory title, however, earned the Strategy Gaming Online Editor’s Choice award and the Game Vortex Top Pick award. The sequel, Crusader Kings II, released in 2012 using the newer Clausewitz Engine and received “generally positive” reviews.

The company also owns the World of Darkness IPs and is the publisher behind Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2.
