Atari will move away from free mobile games in favor of "a strong premium gaming channel" for PCs and consoles, the company announced today. Some of its current mobile offerings, including Atari Combat: Tank Fury and Ninja Fury, will no longer be sold or sold, while it will be allowed to maintain "successful games with a loyal user base."
The first games following this model are already in development, according to Atari's statement, and will be released during the current fiscal year ending in April 2022. There is no information about the game. they could be, but Atari "intends to take advantage of its catalog of 200 proprietary games." so they will probably be familiar with them. Meanwhile, the company will leave its Atari Casino business in Africa, which specializes in gambling titles. It will also reduce your television interests.
"Our intention with any gaming experience is to provide accessible and joyful gaming moments," Wade J. Rosen, CEO of Atari, said in a statement. "This is the core of Atari and what unites our history with our future. To this end, we believe that premium gaming is the best representative of this type of gaming experience and the future. "Atari 's DNA. Despite this new approach to premium gaming, we remain committed to growing and expanding our free gaming successes in the marketplace."
Atari divided his company in two divisions in April: Atari Gaming and Atari Blockchain, the latter focused on "the immense possibilities of games enabled for cryptography and blockchain", as well as the opportunities around NFT. Oh, and there is a plan to build Atari Hotels. Although less strange is the recently released Atari VCS, which is a console based on Linux / mini PC to his own controversy.
It will take a lot of work in 2021 to revitalize the Atari brand, which is usually associated with shitty mobile games and the aforementioned draft schemes. The company released a couple of PC games in 2015, specifically the new games Alone in the Dark and Haunted House, but neither did it particularly well. Alone in the Dark was sold to THQ Nordic in 2018.
