‘It’s hard to be a woman in this company’: More details of sexual harassment at Paradox Interactive emerge

New reports from Eurogamer and Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet detail further allegations of a misogynistic workplace culture at Paradox Interactive, the studio behind grand strategy mainstays including Europa Universalis, Crusader Kings, and Hearts of Iron. The report comes just over a month after the leak of a Paradox employee survey in which 69% of women respondents reported some form of mistreatment while working at the company.

One incident cited in the report includes the hiring of a senior manager with a reputation for “unwelcome approaches and harassment” at his previous studio. A former employee of that studio, who resigned over the harassment she faced, was granted a settlement of nearly 270,000 Swedish kroner ($30,700) in 2016, just months before the manager was hired at Paradox. He maintained “a leading role” there until two months ago, according to the report.
