ACE Team was created as a game modification (or mod) development group and its name comes from the initials of its founders; brothers Andres, Carlos and Edmundo Bordeu.

In 1999, after Bordeu created the mod ZanZan for Doom II.,[2] ACE Team released its first official mod Batman DOOM for Doom II.[3]

In early 2002 ACE Team released the only single-player mod created for Quake III named The Dark Conjunction.[4] During 2002 ACE Team was created as a legal company and entity. During this year and 2003, ACE Team worked on a never released demo of a game named Zenozoik using the Jupiter System formerly based on Lithtech. This demo was the predecessor and starting point for the creation of ACE Team's game Zeno Clash.[5]

In 2004 key members of ACE Team, Andres and Carlos were hired by Wanako Studios and helped develop the company until Vivendi Universal acquired Wanako in early 2007.

In mid-2007, Andres, Carlos, Edmundo and David Caloguerea independently reinstated the company. These four members were the founders of ACE Team as it began operating as a functional independent game studio.

On 21 April 2009, ACE Team released its Source engine powered game Zeno Clash, on 19 May 2009, ACE Team announced Zeno Clash II, a sequel.
