Eden Games (known as Eden Studios until 2003) is a game development studio. In May 2002, the company was sold to the Infogrames Group.[1] It is most well known for the V-Rally series of games, as well as the 2006 release Test Drive Unlimited. They have most recently developed Test Drive Unlimited 2, which was released in February 2011 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The company was a wholly owned subsidiary of Atari, SA. In 2013 Atari decided to close it. However, the company re-opened in 2014 under the impulsion of former employees and with the financing of ID Invest and Monster Capital. As of 2013, Eden Games have started up as a small independent games company, independent of Atari and releases its new game, GT Spirit, on Apple TV in December, 2015.
