About

Atari is a multi-platform, global interactive entertainment and licensing company. The original innovator of video gaming, founded in 1972, Atari owns and/or manages a portfolio of more than 200 games and franchises, including world renowned brands like Asteroids, Centipede, Missile Command, Pong, Test Drive, Backyard Sports, Ghostbusters, and Rollercoaster Tycoon. Atari capitalizes on these powerful properties by delivering compelling games online (i.e. browser, Facebook and digital download), on smartphones and tablets and other connected devices. The Company also develops and distributes interactive entertainment for video game consoles from Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony. As a licensor, Atari extends its brand and franchises into other media, merchandising and publishing categories. In 2018, Atari relaunched its hardware business with its first new game system in years, the Atari VCS, via a successful Indiegogo campaign, with consumer sales schedule to begin in 2019.
