The official closure of Eden Games comes nearly a year after studio owner Atari labeled the studio as "discontinued operations," suggesting its shutdown was not far away.

The studio's final game was 2011's warmly received Test Drive Unlimited 2 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Previously developed titles include 2008's Alone in the Dark and the 2006 original Test Drive Unlimited.

In 2011, Eden Games formed a "symbolic strike" aimed at protesting a wave of forthcoming layoffs at the firm, believed to total as many as 80. A letter from Eden Games claimed "mismanagement" on the part of Atari and noted the publisher was not willing to enter negotiations with the studio.
