Iron Lore Entertainment (also Iron Lore) was a video game developer that was founded in October 2000 by Brian Sullivan (co-creator of the Age of Empires series) and Paul Chieffo.

In late June 2006, the company released Titan Quest, an action/role-playing video game/adventure game for publisher THQ. Titan Quest is set in ancient Greece, Egypt, Mesopotamia and China, and makes extensive use of the mythology of those civilizations. The company released an expansion pack, Titan Quest: Immortal Throne, in March 2007.

Iron Lore received the New Studio award at the 7th annual Game Developers Choice Awards, recognizing outstanding achievement of a studio whose first title was released in 2006.[1]

It was announced in the October 2007 issue of Games for Windows Magazine that Iron Lore Entertainment was assisting with the development of the Relic Entertainment title Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War: Soulstorm, which was the third and final expansion for Dawn of War. It proved to be their last project.

On February 27, 2008 it was announced that Iron Lore Entertainment had closed down owing to an inability to secure funding for its next project.[2][3]

Following the closure, former members of Iron Lore formed a new company called Crate Entertainment.
