Cyberlore Studios is an American video game developer that was founded in Northampton, Massachusetts in 1992. The company specialized in creating expansion packs for existing games.

Their first titles were Al-Qadim: The Genie's Curse (1994), and World of Aden: Entomorph - Plague of the Darkfall (1995, co-developed with SSI). Their first job as an outsourced expansion developer was WarCraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal (1996) for Blizzard Entertainment's 1995 hit WarCraft II: Tides of Darkness.

Following the success of Heroes of Might and Magic II: The Succession Wars, New World Computing decided to make an expansion, but wanted to concentrate their own efforts on Might and Magic VI and Heroes of Might and Magic III. Therefore, they outsourced the development of the expansion, The Price of Loyalty, to Cyberlore Studios. It was released in August 1997.

Cyberlore's development cycle was continued with Deadlock II: Shrine Wars (1998), Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim (2000), Majesty: The Northern Expansion (2001), MechWarrior 4: Black Knight (2001), MechWarrior 4: Inner Sphere 'Mech Pak (2002), MechWarrior 4: Clan 'Mech Pak (2002), MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries (2002), RISK: Global Domination (2003), Playboy: The Mansion (2005), and Playboy: The Mansion - Private Party (2005).

Cyberlore also produced cutscenes for Star Trek: Away Team (2001) and Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor (2001).

The company and its intellectual properties were acquired by Paradox Interactive in July 2007, for which Cyberlore co-developed the re-release Majesty Gold HD Edition (2012).
