Cyanide is a game development studio, based in the western suburbs of Paris, France, with offices in Montreal, Canada and Chengdu, China. The studio was created in 2000 by 8 ex-UbiSoft employees and in 2007 has a headcount of 70. It both develops and offers engineering services for the Sony PSP and PS2, the Nintendo Wii and DS, the Microsoft Xbox 360 as well as the Windows PC platforms.

Best known for its sport management sims (Pro Cycling Manager, Horse Racing Manager and Pro Rugby Manager), Cyanide broke the mould with its 2004 release of a heroic fantasy/RTS game called Chaos League.

In June 2007, the studio released its seventh edition of Pro Cycling Manager as well as an action/RPG called Loki. In September 2007, the studio released its first PSP title called Pro Cycling.

On November 14, 2007, Cyanide announced they would be remaking Blood Bowl for the Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, and PlayStation Portable.[1]

On June 8, 2009, Cyanide and George R. R. Martin announced a partnership to create a Real-time strategy game and a Role-playing game based on Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books.[2] The strategy game has been announced and is entitled A Game of Thrones: Genesis.

On May 4, 2011 it was announced that Cyanide are currently developing Of Orcs and Men, an upcoming fantasy RPG that is expected to release in Q2 2012.[3]
