The studio will be lead by Rod Humble, former VP of EA Games and former CEO of Second Life development studio Linden Lab.

"Opening a studio in the California Bay Area puts us in the heart of one of the largest gaming and tech communities in the world," said Ebba Ljungerud, CEO of Paradox Interactive.
"Rod Humble and his team bring a wealth of experience and a studio leader who has led work on games that have shaped the industry several times over. We hope to have some earth-shaking news to share from the Tectonic team soon."

In January 2019, Paradox Interactive acquired all rights and assets for the Prison Architect intellectual property. The studio stated that the acquisition would allow them to "continue development of Prison Architect going forward", and to "explore opportunities with the wider 'Architect' IP in the future". Paradox Tectonic may be the studio to work on the next entry in the franchise.
