Animoca Brands acquires racing game studio Eden Games

Major racing game talent joins the metaverse and blockchain gaming giant

Animoca Brands has announced that it has successfully acquired Eden Games, the development studio behind major racing titles like Gear Club (and its associated spin offs), Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed, F1 Mobile Racing, and more.

Established in 1998, the France-based developer has managed to sell over 13 million game boxes and over 60 million app downloads worldwide. This trusted reputation extends to its industry partners too; having partnerships with car manufacturers like BMW, Bugatti, Porsche, Lotus, Pagani and more.

As for the partnership itself, Animoca Brands will leverage the institutional knowledge and expertise of the Eden Games team to further develop its racing ecosystems, like REVV Motorsport.

David Nadal, co-founder and head of studio of Eden Games, said: “We are excited to start the next chapter of Eden Games by joining Animoca Brands. We look forward to producing new experiences that challenge the status quo within the motorsport genre and venture into new frontiers such as Web3 alongside a leader in the space.”

The new games will also provide additional utility to the NFT Race Passes and the other assets obtained by swapping assets from Animoca Brands’ F1 Delta Time, which ceased operations in March 2022.
