Liquidation for Eden Games

Atari moves to close Test Drive developer

Test Drive Unlimited developer, Eden Games, has closed. Back in January, Atari confirmed that the developer was entering liquidation. Since the release of Test Drive Unlimited 2, the developer has been on a difficult road.

Atari had announced that it was in the process of trying to sell off what remained of the studio, if possible, and if it was unable to find a buyer it would close the developer. The majority of the developers at Eden were let go in the summer of 2011, with many of the developers later finding a home at Blossom Minds.

The game was said to have only sold around 900,000 copies, which was very disappointing and not near the performance level expected for the title.
