Paradox Interactive and Romero Games have confirmed that Empire of Sin’s release window on Nintendo Switch has been delayed.

“We at Paradox Interactive, along with our partners at Romero Games, have an ambitious vision for Empire of Sin, and decided together that more development time is needed,” explains Paradox Interactive CEO Ebba Ljungerud.

“This will allow us to deliver the game that our community deserves and meets our standards.” 

Brenda Romero adds: “The challenge in making a game like no one has made before is exactly that – making a game no one has made before. It takes time to get everything right and presents us with some unique opportunities. I am grateful we are taking the additional time to polish.

“The support and enthusiasm our community has shown thus far for Empire of Sin is incredible. We hope that once you’re let loose in Chicago and see the world we’ve created, you’ll believe it was worth the wait!”

This character-driven, noir-inspired strategy game puts you at the heart of the ruthless criminal underworld of 1920s Prohibition-era Chicago.

Playing as one of 14 distinct bosses, you must hustle, charm, and intimidate your way to the top, to then do whatever it takes to stay there as you work behind the scenes in the gritty underbelly of organized crime.

Empire of Sun will release for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Fall 2020.
