The Iron Lore Entertainment Website
announces they are closing shop after failing to secure funding for their next
project due to "several unrelated events" (thanks The Patches Scrolls
). Here's word on the
demise of the developer of the Titan Quest series and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of
War - Soulstorm:
It is with great regret that we must announce that as of
close of business Tuesday, February 19, 2008 Iron Lore Entertainment has ceased
active game development. Several unrelated events occurred which resulted in
Iron Lore being unable to secure funding for its next project.
We would like to extend our thanks to everyone who has helped us in the last
seven years – our team who moved mountains to create such great games, our
publisher THQ who has been a great partner through three product development
cycles, and most of all our customers and fans. We owe all of the success we’ve
had to you, and our greatest satisfaction has come from creating games that have
given enjoyment to the community.
While Iron Lore will not continue, the talent of the team is embodied in the
individuals now available for other opportunities. If you are a developer or
publisher looking to hire top-notch experienced developers, please send an email
to pchieffo “at” ironlore “dot” com and we will be happy to facilitate
recruiting with you.
Iron Lore also owns it’s powerful and flexible engine and tool set, and is
actively pursuing licensing opportunities. If you are interested in further
information about the technology and licensing options, please contact pchieffo
