A motorcycle racing game licensed by Moto GP is also in development.

F1 Delta Time
F1 Delta Time is a Formula 1 racing game that features collectible cars, components, and drivers.
Players can choose to stake their collectibles to earn a share of REVV revenue. However, they cannot play the game with their collectibles during the time these items are staked. So there is a tradeoff between staking and competing in the game.
Each day, players are presented with a new track that has different track conditions when compared to the previous day. Players must mix and match components to get the right setups to succeed on this track.
Each week, the highest ranking players for the week earn REVV rewards.
Each NFT associated with F1 Delta Time has a set of stats. For example, cars have top speed, acceleration, and grip, while drivers have stamina, concentration, and aggression.
These stats are determined by a combination of rarity and random number generation.
Moto GP is a motorcycle racing game that uses REVV. It is currently in development. Animoca brands has not given any details as to how the game will work. But it should feature collectible bikes and drivers and be similar to F1 Delta Time in many ways.
Other REVV Games
Once Moto GP is released, a third REVV game will be produced. The developer has not released any details about this third game except to say that it is in the conceptual stage of development.
Additional games will be produced if these three are successful.
Animoca Brands is a successful producer of traditional (non-blockchain) mobile games. its previous titles include Thomas and Friends: Race ON!, Crazy Defense Hero, Master Chef: Dream Plate, Astro Boy Dash, and others.
