Titan Quest Developer Iron Lore Shutting Down
The developer behind Titan Quest and its expansion, Iron Lore Entertainment, has posted a notice on its website announcing the studio’s closure. The reason cited was an inability to secure funding for its next project.
Iron Lore was currently at work on the upcoming expansion for Dawn of War. There’s currently no word on how the game will be impacted by the closing, but we’ll bring word as soon as we find something out.
The announcement read in part:
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.
As a fan of Titan Quest, I’d like to wish all of Iron Lore’s staff the best in their future endeavors.
