In recent news, as of February 27, 2008, Iron Lore has decided to stop all development and pack it up. As cited from The Escapist, Iron Lore was unable to receive enough funding for their next project. Though to this editor, there is more than meets the eye.
This company produced Titan Quest, a fabulous and beautifully designed game with an innovative class system, and also assisted in making WarHammer 40,000: Dawn of War: Soul Storm. It’s hard for me to accept that not being able to receive funding was the main reason, which we should all know by now that there are many reasons for companies to go under in the gaming industry, since it is a “dog eats dog” world. Nothing to do about it, except to wave good-bye to a company with such potential and hope for the best to the workers.
