Meet the new Atari

Though Atari was one of the founding fathers of the games industry, for many it will always be synonymous with the video games crash of 1983.

The firm’s fast and loose approach to publishing, and its lack of quality control, was so severe that it killed faith in the sector resulting in a market collapse in the US.

Since then, the name has passed through a number of hands, including Tramel Technology, Hasbro, Infogrames and IESA.

Then in 2009, Atari parent company Infogrames rebranded itself as Atari SA.

The once dominant brand has seen its worth diminish during the years, to the point when, in 2013, three of Atari’s subsidiaries filed for bankruptcy. Re-emerging wounded, but still alive.

The story is too old to be commented.
