Atari Brings Back Infrogrames As A Publishing Label

Per Atari, the company is reviving Infogrames as a publishing label.

“For decades, Infogrames built a reputation as a publisher and developer of amazing and eclectic games, and we are excited to bring it back,” said Wade Rosen, Chairman and CEO of Atari.

The first order of business for Infrogrames is it was revealed that it purchased Totally Reliable Delivery Service from Tinybuild.

Infogrames was a French video game company founded in 1983 by Bruno Bonnell and Christophe Sapet. Initially focused on distribution, it became a significant game development and publishing player.

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, Infogrames acquired several notable gaming companies, including Atari, GT Interactive, and Hasbro Interactive, which brought them iconic franchises like RollerCoaster Tycoon, Unreal, and Test Drive.

The company went through multiple rebrandings and restructuring efforts, eventually adopting the name Atari SA in 2009. Despite its rich history and contributions to the gaming industry, Atari faced financial difficulties and underwent various changes in ownership and management over the years.

“With the launch of Infogrames, Atari is reviving a legacy brand known for game development and global distribution in the ’80s and ’90s,”  said Wade Rosen. “Infogrames intends to actively manage its catalog of titles by expanding digital and physical distribution, and developing new collections and sequels. Consistent with Atari’s approach, Infogrames sees game preservations as a core component of its mission.”
