Atari enters into an agreement to acquire Digital Eclipse (

Digital Eclipse wrote a quick FAQ on their website:…/digital-eclipse-atari

Most important (I think):

Is Digital Eclipse only allowed to work on Atari properties now?‍

It is business as usual at Digital Eclipse! While we’re certainly happy to have greater access to Atari’s fantastic library, we still have the freedom to seek out projects with other parties. In addition to recent releases like Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord and The Making of Karateka, Digital Eclipse has a lot of unannounced projects in the works that do not involve Atari’s IP, and those will carry on as planned. The future is wide open, and we believe partnering with Atari will bring about even more opportunities.

I don't think this is a good thing. Atari didn't prove themselves in the recent years, so my trust is shaken. Also taking the company Digital Eclipse from the free market is concerning, because they did awesome jobs with restoration of older games for other companies. Will Atari allow them to work on other projects? And what is the goal here? Does Atari only sell their old stuff and do not produce new games? And if Atari fails, then will Digital Eclipse be resolved into nothing?

I'm worried for Digital Eclipse, because that's an awesome game house I do not want to lose in the gaming industry. on 31 Oct 2023 10:07 collapse

There's always Code Mystics, comprised of most of the old guard from Digital Eclipse in the 1990s and 2000s. on 31 Oct 2023 09:02 next collapse

Atari? You mean Infogrames?

During their fiscal year meeting (May 2009), IESA announced that it would be changing its corporate name to an Atari branded name, in line with the use of the name for its subsidiaries. In reference to this, Atari, Inc.'s CEO Jim Wilson said: “We’ve gotten rid of the Infogrames and Atari duality, the confusion around that. We are one simplified company, under one management team, under one brand.”… on 31 Oct 2023 16:33 collapse

Modern Atari is not Atari. Its Infogrames with stolen valor. on 31 Oct 2023 17:05 collapse

What has Atari done that’s relevant anymore, besides just releasing their retro games for the millionth time?
