Some of the earliest releases can be dated back to June 20 1993 when it started as a Gauntlet clone. However, evidence of development started as early as 1992. In 1994, Mark Wedel started contributing to the project, who eventually become the current maintainer of the Crossfire project. Historically Crossfire has used the CVS tool for version control. However, the project decided to migrated to Subversion, the successor to CVS, on September 16, 2006 for its features. 
Over Crossfire's long history, there has been derivatives that branched out from the project. Examples include:
- Daimonin (code is open-sourced, most of the game content is not)
- Wograld (code and content is open sourced, completely new 45 degree isometric perspective and new game mechanics)
