Paradox drops Salem MMO, Seatribe to self-publish


By on June 18, 2013 at 4:14 pm

The upcoming Salem MMO, which we last covered a year ago, has just announced that they are splitting from Paradox and will be bringing their sandbox MMO to market themselves.

“Effective from July 8, Seatribe will assume full support management and development ownership of Salem: The Crafting MMO,” writes Seatribe on their official forum. “Any decisions taken from that point on will be taken by and communicated through Seatribe to you – the community. Paradox Interactive will start phasing out their involvement in the project from today and on July 8 the game for all intents and purposes will be Seatribe’s to run.”

“We firmly believe this decision is in the best interest of Seatribe, Paradox Interactive and absolutely for the community as you will have a development team working even more direct with you and the game.”

The game will continue to be monetised as it currently is, so players who have already bought in will be taken care of.

the fact that this went off without any lawsuits is a good thing. Paradox splitting is probably due to differences in the direction the game should be taking. I don’t see it necessarily as the end of this game it has a fairly good niche following which is really all they need.


going by Paradox’s track record, they probably wanted them to release too damn early. Something Paradox is known for. “Release it now and we’ll patch it later” attitude really doesn’t help the developers.
Take Sword of the Stars II as a prime example.
