Atari Financials

IndustryGamers provides a summary of Atari's financial reports for Fiscal Q1 2010, which concluded on June 30, saying their net revenue dropped about 65% to $24.9 million USD over the same period last year. This is in part due to the release of a single major title (Sandlot Sluggers) during that period, which caused retail revenue to drop to $14 million, compared with $54.2 million in fiscal Q1 2009. Online revenue from Star Trek Online was up about 25%, and word is: "Overall, the company's decision to publish Cryptic's online games bore fruit, with online revenue accounting for 44 percent of total net revenue, versus 4 percent last year." Thanks joao.

I wouldn't worry about that mate, I'm sure there's plenty of space left in the desert next to ET for copies of Star Trek Online

I wonder if we'll see that in New Vegas?

This isn't the same Atari as that from 20 years ago Only in name.

Actually it is the same if Nolan Bushnell is back.

Atari had their hand in publishing some cracking games over the years. Sure only publishing but the likes of neverwinter nights was fantastic in its day.  
Its not the cough that carries you off but the coffin they carry you off in.

Not really, BUT it seems to be the way of Cryptic. Enough content from tutorial to end game, and then charge for everything else via the C-Store. It really sucks.

The company that was the Atari Corporation back in the day is no more. What exists now is just the name and logo which was sold to Hasbro, then later taken by Infogrames.. which then named itself Atari, SA...

Atari...please, you'd had your time in the sun. During the 1970's-80's. But please, your death is over 20 years too late.

We need more ppl posting about how they played some shitty 2600 game back in 1982 and how this company sucks.

Every time I see the name "Atari" I continue to marvel at how the hell they are still around.

Not to be totally sarcastic, but what do you expect from an industry committed to minimal investment and optimal return? "Quality" is only a marketing term anymore.

And that will ultimately be its downfall sooner or later.

Quality game? You mean an MMO? I thought the MMO business model was to rush the game to market and only add things to attract/retain subscribers.

God help us all. Cryptic's business model being the MMO factory and cranking out a mediocre MMO in 2 years and then triple dipping into customer's pockets after launch is actually profitable. Buy the game, pay a sub, and pay for bonus content.

As if it wasn't hard enough to get top quality games out of this genre.

Yeah revenue from STO is up 25% because Cryptic is nickle and dime ya for everything in the game.
