DMi Games has announced it has acquired the NASCAR game license from Eutechnyx, the studio that held the rights to develop titles about the sport since 2010. The deal allows DMi to create NASCAR related games for PC, consoles, and mobile platforms going forward, and the studio has announced it expects to release a game in 2016 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Eutechnyx were working on a NASCAR 15 update, and that will be released as a digital only update for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC this Spring.
DMi Games is being headed by Ed Martin, who has been in game development since the 90’s, and involved with NASCAR games for much of that time. He is joined by Tom Dusenberry who is the CEO of the new studio. He founded Hasbro Interactive and was the former President of that studio. Former license holder Eutechnyx hasn’t had a great couple of years with layoffs hitting the company, and one of its last releases, Ride To Hell: Retribution, being panned by critics across the board.
