White Wolf Publishing is an American gaming and book publisher, most notable as the publisher of the roleplaying game Vampire: The Masquerade. The company was founded in 1991 as a merger between Lion Rampant[1] and White Wolf Magazine, and was initially led by Mark Rein┬ĚHagen of the former and Steve and Stewart Wieck of the latter. Since White Wolf Publishing, Inc. merged with CCP Games hf in 2006[2], White Wolf Publishing has been an imprint of CCP hf. The name "White Wolf" originates from Michael Moorcock's works.

White Wolf publishes a line of several different but overlapping games set in the "World of Darkness", a "modern gothic" world that, while seemingly similar to the real world, is home to supernatural terrors, ancient conspiracies, and several approaching apocalypses. The company also publishes the high fantasy Exalted RPG, the modern mythic Scion, and d20 system material under their Sword & Sorcery imprint, including such titles as the Dungeons & Dragons gothic horror campaign setting Ravenloft, and Monte Cook's Arcana Unearthed series. In order to complement the World of Darkness game line, a LARP system dubbed Mind's Eye Theatre has been published.

White Wolf has also released several series of novels based on the Old World of Darkness, all of which are currently and indefinitely out of print.

White Wolf has also ventured in the collectible card game market with Arcadia, Rage, and Vampire: The Eternal Struggle (formerly Jyhad). V:TES, perhaps the most successful card game, was originally published by Wizards of the Coast in 1994, but was abandoned just two years later after a revamped base set, name change and three expansions were published. White Wolf acquired the rights to the game in 2000, even though no new material had been produced for the game in over four years. Since then, several V:TES expansions have been released, and the game is the only official source of material for the Old World of Darkness.

Video games such as Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption and Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines are based on White Wolf's role-playing game Vampire: The Masquerade. There are also several Hunter: The Reckoning video games.
