Test Drive Unlimited 2 developer Eden Games is no more as Atari close their doors. This decision comes in the wake of the latest fiscal report from the publisher, which sees revenue down.
They report $51.3m in revenue from FY2012, down from the previous $77.8m. Losses were almost halved at least, from $8m to $4.8m. Eden Games' assets will be sold off entirely.
In 2011 the French development studio already suffered heavy redundancies. $7.6m was additionally made by Atari selling its remaining stake in GameOne, a French television channel.
Atari cite their numbers being down because they continue to beef up their mobile games operations. Breakout: Boost, Atari's Greatest Hits, and Asteroid Gunner have collectively attained 10m downloads as of the fiscal report, encouraging the publisher to invest further in the mobile space.
