I am new to this forum and was trying to research more info on this... but... Iron Lore: News 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.

Good choice THQ! Sigh, out of business before the expansion even releases.

First off, iron lore only did some outsourced jobs. The bulk was done by relic. Secondly, Iron Lore did create good things, they were just unable to get more funding for a future project - the dibs they got from SS just weren't enough. Thirdly, the core of SS is long done, with only some things left.

Also you should check out the relic forums from time to time, you'd actually notice, that iron lore's passing isn't taken nicely, as most people there got to like them, as they talked with the community as well.

I'm thinking that the release of SS might be delayed because they might have to do a massive reprint of all the CD boxes etc. to remove the "Iron LoreĀ® is a registered trademark of Iron Lore Entertainment Inc." thing because Iron Lore arn't actually a company anymore. But ofcourse, I know nothing about this sort of thing.

unless Relic wishes to Honor Iron lore for there work then they might leave the Iron lore T.M on.

The trademark still exists. The thing is, they might change the credits slightly in in the first patch, if they won't be able to do so for the printed versions anymore.

They probably add something like - we miss you or whatever.

Wow, that sucks, I never new the video game industry was so harsh. So for a games company to work, they have to secure enough money from their last game's profites to fund their next project?! That's complicated. So Iron Lore are well and truly screwed.
