Atari Acquires More than 100 PC And Console Titles From The 80s And 90s

Atari has revealed it has acquired more than 100 titles on PC and console from the 1980s and 1990s.

The news mentions Atari has picked up Bubsy, Hardball, the Demolition Racer series, as well as 1942: Pacific Air War, F-117A, and the F-14 air combat series.

“This is a deep catalogue that includes groundbreaking and award-winning titles from Accolade, Infogrames and Microprose,” said Atari CEO Wade Rosen. “Many of these titles are a part of Atari history, and fans can look forward to seeing many of these games re-released in physical and digital formats, and in some cases, even ported to modern consoles.”

In the same acquisition, Atari also picked up trademarks for the Accolade and GTI brands. Accolade was a US-based developer and publisher from 1984 until 2000.

Furthermore, Atari is currently undertaking a multi-year effort to transform the company. This involves expanding and putting effort into the video game business by leveraging the company’s growing catalogue of IPs to release classic games and also bring new, high-quality games to the market.

Atari plans on doing this by pulling from the IP vault it currently owns and reinventing classics, reimagining storylines, and reworking narratives inspired by some of the most iconic games Atari owns.
