Paradox Interactive's investor report contains a couple of very interesting snips of information for fans of both World of Darkness and Vampire: The Masquerade. CEO Fredrik Wester wrote that both IPs will "step up their visibility in the market by organizing community activities" and more. For World of Darkness, Wester said that "progress is being made with White Wolf Entertainment's efforts to develop" the game. A new fifth edition board game will be launched for Vampire: the Masquerade.

We have made no secret that we are continuously looking for attractive acquisitions. We bought Triumph Studios in 2017, and in early 2018 we announced our acquisition of a 33 percent stake in Hardsuit Labs. And progress is being made with White Wolf Entertainment’s efforts to develop World of Darkness. In 2018, they will step up their visibility in the market by organizing community activities and launching the fifth edition of the role-play board game Vampire the Masquerade. 

In addition, Paradox has plans to launch the board game as a book that will become "the basis for all the stories and descriptions of the world that will turn up in any subsequent products", according to Wester.

Interestingly, Wester also has announced his resignation from Paradox. He has been at its helm for 15 years, but says that the move is "what suits Paradox best". He will leave his position as CEO in August, but will take on the job of Executive Chairman of the Board. "This will be my full-time job; I will continue to work out of the office and hopefully have more time to interact with all my colleagues and you" Wester wrote.
