Incinerator Studios was an American video game developer, based in Carlsbad, California, known for developing several racing games, three based on the animated film franchise Cars and one MX vs. ATV game, with all four of them featuring other versions developed by the more experienced racing developer Rainbow Studios. Incinerator Studios, like Rainbow Studios, was a wholly owned subsidiary of THQ, but it was spun off as an independent company in March 2009 as part of a cost-cutting move.[1] In 2011, Incinerator launched a new company, Playdek, focused on developing mobile tabletop games.[2]

Their website as of 2017 is defunct and most likely the company is defunct.
