The 3DO Company (19912003) was an American video game publisher and developer based in Redwood City, California. Most of its output was for its namesake 3DO Interactive Multiplayer, but after that console left the market, it tried to branch out into third-party software development. As a third-party developer, its best known proprties were the Army Men games and New World Computing's Might and Magic VII through IX, including the Heroes of Might and Magic spinoff series.

In May 2003, 3DO filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and its licenses were acquired by other companies, most notably Ubisoft getting the rights to the Might and Magic series.
