Atari S.A. Bankrupt Too

This statement (Adobe Acrobat format) follows word that the U.S. arm of Atari has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection with news that the company's French parent Atari S.A. is likewise seeking a court-governed reorganization with a "book 6" filing in France. "In light of the current situation with BlueBay, we have decided to take what we think is the best decision to protect the Company and its shareholders, says Jim Wilson, CEO of Atari. "Through these ongoing procedures, and especially the auction process in the US, we will seek to maximize the proceeds in the best interest of the Company and all of its shareholders." Thanks NowGamer.

HASBRO AND ATARI RESOLVE DUNGEONS & DRAGONS RIGHTS DISPUTE

August 15, 2011 (Renton, WA) – Wizards of the Coast LLC, Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) and Atari, S.A. announced today the settlement and resolution of the complaint against Atari, S.A. and the counterclaims filed by Atari, S.A. against Hasbro, Inc. filed in December 2009 in regards to the Dungeons & Dragons brand.

Digital licensing rights for Dungeons & Dragons have been returned to Hasbro. Atari will continue to develop and market several games under license from Hasbro and Wizards, including the #1 Xbox LIVE® hit Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale and the upcoming Heroes of Neverwinter for Facebook. Additional settlement details remain private.

In addition, the acquisition of Cryptic Studios by Perfect World Entertainment Inc. from Atari in July 2011 has delayed the Neverwinter PC Game scheduled for release later this year. Perfect World will be investing in a more immersive experience for release in late 2012.

I pulled this right from the WOTC site, looks like Infograms still retains the license. I'd still love to know why NWN2 is impossible to buy now however.
