Paradox Financials - Empire of Sin Delayed to Fall

The Year-end Report 2019 from Paradox Interactive has full year financial results for the Swedish videogame publisher. They report Q4 revenue of around $39 million USD, an increase by 13% over Q4 last year, operating profits of $16.7 million USD, up 11%, and pretax profits of $16 million USD. For the year they report $131.8 million USD in revenue, up 14%; operating profit of 48.3 million USD, a 4% increase, and pretax profit of $46.5 million USD. In a related note, they also announce that Empire of Sin is being delayed, and Romero Games' upcoming 1920s gangster game is now expected this fall (spring down under), rather than in the spring (vice versa). Here's word from a post on Steam from Brenda Romero, who may not have chosen the best analogy in saying they want to take the time and care with this game that a bootlegger would put into bathtub gin:
As any good bootlegger knows, good liquor canít be rushed and the same goes for game development. This is why we have decided to move the release of Empire of Sin to Fall 2020.

We appreciate all your support so far, and trust that you understand why choosing quality over speed is important. After all, everyone knows you gotta stay sharp to make it in Chicago.
