Pyro Studios is a video game developer based in Madrid (Spain), that was founded in 1996 with the purpose of developing quality video games. A consequence of this commitment was the development of Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines, which was released in 1998. The success of this title led to the release of a disk containing new missions entitled Commandos: Beyond the Call of Duty.

In October 2001, the Microsoft Windows version of Commandos 2: Men of Courage was launched, followed by its release on Microsoft Xbox and Sony PlayStation 2, in September 2002. Commandos 3: Destination Berlin was released in October 2003. In total, the Commandos series has sold more than 5 million copies worldwide.

Praetorians, an epic 3D strategy game for Windows set at the time of Julius Caesar's campaigns was released in February 2003.

Imperial Glory was released at the beginning of 2005 and its latest offering, Commandos: Strike Force released during the first months of 2006, is far more similar to the Medal of Honor or Call of Duty games than to earlier entries of the series.

In November 2006 Spanish Website Revogamers reported that Pyro Studios had started work on an unnamed adventure game for the Wii.

The company has a staff of over 150, including programmers, graphic designers, a musician and video game designers.
