Animoca Brands acquires Eden Games

Animoca Brands has announced its acquisition of racing game studio, Eden Games from Engine Gaming & Media.

Founded in 1998 and based in France, Eden Games is known for its popular racing games ranging from pure racing to open-world and even management racing games.

The company has strong experience in developing award-winning racing games across the mobile, console, and PC platforms, including Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed, F1® Mobile Racing, and the franchises Gear. Club, Test Drive, and V-Rally. Eden Games has over 13 million game boxes sold and over 60 million app downloads worldwide.

In March, at Apple Inc.’s Peek Performance event, Apple announced Eden Games’ latest expansion of the Gear.Club franchise, Gear.Club Stradale, as the “next big release” coming exclusively to Apple Arcade (see Engine Games & Media’s announcement).

Gear.Club is a hyper-realistic racing simulator and served as the primary racing game for the open qualifiers of World’s Fastest Gamer, a first-of-its-kind competition that transits motorsport gamers into real-world champions. World’s Fastest Gamer has over 400 million TV and video on demand viewers with over 100 broadcasters in more than 50 countries plus additional distribution on ESPN, EURO Sport, and Amazon.

Eden Games also has long-term partnerships with more than 30 established brands in the automotive industry, including BMW, Bugatti, Porsche, Lotus, Pagani, and many others.

Animoca Brands will leverage the expertise and capabilities of Eden Games to work on existing and new titles in the REVV Motorsport ecosystem and to bring to market a series of new blockchain-based racing games. The new games will 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.
