Civilization 5 Designer Leaves Paradox Over ‘Creative Differences’


Share.

Shafer will return to work on his Kickstarter project, At the Gates.

Sid Meier’s Civilization V designer Jon Shafer and Paradox Interactive have “decided to part ways due to creative differences,” Paradox has announced.

“Jon is an ambitious person with a lot of drive and passion and he has led some good discussions in our teams over the past few months,” said Executive Vice President of Studios at Paradox Interactive Mattias Lilja. “However, during the course of these discussions, it has become clear that we want different things creatively and we have therefore taken the mutual decision that it is best to part ways.”

On the Kickstarter page for his 4X game At the Gates, Shafer commented on his six-month tenure at Paradox, confirming “in the end it really was creative and cultural differences.” He added, “I can’t go into details and will simply leave it at that. I still love Paradox and its games, but things sadly just didn’t work out.”

Shafer said he’ll return to working on At the Gates, now with a “clear plan on the design front” for how he wants to complete development. “I had hoped my time at Paradox would serve as a source of inspiration,” said Shafer, “and fortunately I was definitely right about that.”
