Atari's Game Plan

Resurrected game company Atari reveals plans to split into two divisions, one dedicated to gaming and the other focused on blockchain technology. VGC has details on the game plan, saying Atari will bring some of it its attention back to PC gaming:
Atari’s Gaming Division will focus on retro gaming, the company said, specifically through mobile games, the VCS console and licensing.

Atari will continue to operate and develop free-to-play mobile games, it said. In addition, new development will be shifted to console and PC, with an emphasis on “revitalizing classic Atari intellectual property for the modern era”.

It said: “These new releases will share the classics’ instant enjoyability, while introducing a meaningful single-player campaign, couch co-op/multiplayer, and online play.”

I like the idea of the retro-consoles, they are pricey as they need to actually make money from it.

The hotel rendering would be a cool HQ, as a hotel... oooooook.

But yeah I need some consistent, successful years out of Atari before I really trust them too much.

Too many abandoned plans.

Talk about running on fumes. The only thing substantial left is a cool name. I really don't think we want a 2022 Centipede or Custer's Revenge.

Ahhhh blockchain. The magic way to rake in millions from investors

I sold the original wav of one of my farts as arts. I saved it in a blockchain.
I guess I am now officially a Fartist.

And don't forget Atari Hotels. Coming soon!

The whole thing reeks of so much despiration that you can't help but laugh. Enjoy your trip to bankruptcy guys. Maybe the next owners of the Atari brand will have some better ideas.

Sadly I did LOL when I read this news. I mean really... I would love to see some Atari classics come to life in a new modern way... but it too often fails even with companies that have way more money than these folk.

I'm looking forward to Air-Sea Battle 2022. And maybe they can convince Spielberg to do an ET sequel game. The giant holes are even bigger!
