Paradox’s VP of Acquisition & Portfolio Strategy Shams Jorjani revealed the news on Twitter

Also confirming that the purchase “includes everything,”

 

In a press release sent after the initial Twitter announcement, Paradox CEO Fredrik Wester says that,

“Like Paradox’s games, White Wolf’s properties have dedicated, passionate communities. While there are similarities in spirit, White Wolf’s IPs have very different themes than Paradox’s titles, and deserve their own brand and team.”

 

White Wolf was a tabletop RPG and book publisher most famous for its Vampire: The Masquerade and World of Darkness PnP RPGS.  Vampire led to two PC games, Redemption and the cult-classic Bloodlines, World Of Darkness setting was to become an MMO until its cancellation in 2014. EVE devs CCP purchased White Wolf in 2006, but had yet to do anything with it.
