Disney Interactive has renamed the recently purchased Climax Racing as Black Rock Studio.

Although no titles have currently been revealed, following the purchase last year Disney told GamesIndustry.biz that the studio sees scope for innovation within the racing genre and hopes to build on key Disney brands.

"The new name symbolises the next chapter in our development of outstanding games for the next generation and beyond," commented Tony Beckwith, co-founder of Black Rock Studios.

"Being part of the creative family of Disney Interactive Studios and having access to the breadth and scope of the resources of the Walt Disney Company will enhance our ability to create award-winning titles that inspire and challenge gamers throughout the world," he added.

As Climax Racing the studio developed a name for itself with successful titles such as Moto GP and ATV Offroad Fury.
