Atari Test Drive studio Eden Games close to closure

Test Drive Unlimited 2 team is all that remains

The team behind the reboots of the Test Drive and Alone In The Dark series has been all but closed by its parent company Atari.

As part of their efforts to stave off their recent losses Atari is refocusing their business on mobile gaming.

Sadly, Eden Games has become a casualty of this due to the poor performance of Test Drive Unlimited 2 which was poorly received when it launched at the beginning of 2011.

Most of Eden's staff had already been laid off last year and now they are winding up the business. Eden will retain a team maintaining the online services for Test Drive Unlimited 2 but all other operations have ceased.

Thanks Gamasutra.
