In the Internet appeared the first teaser Ataribox.
Strange Atari was once one of the originators of the video game, and now Ekes out a miserable existence, periodically reminding myself ugly crafts like Alone in the Dark: Illumination. But in some incredible way the company stays afloat and even soon is going to present the world your new console!
Executive Director of Atari Fred Chesnais (Fred Chesnais) talked to portal Venture Beat confirmed that the company returns to the market of gaming devices. It turns out that Atari is preparing a product that is in development for several years.
The project is called Ataribox. According to Chesnais, the console is based on PC technology. Other details of the businessman did not disclose. The author Venture Beat suggests that Atari decided to jump on the same train of nostalgia, and Nintendo with the NES Classic Mini. That is to release a set of classic games in the form factor of the iconic console of the past.
In the Internet appeared the first teaser Ataribox, which you can watch below.
Interestingly, in conversation with Venture Beat, Chesnais assured that the Atari revival is going very well. Currently, the company has focused on mobile games (e.g., released on phones RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic) and much more issues a license for its brands. For example, a huge Atari logo lit up in the trailer of the movie “blade Runner 2049”.
According to Chesnais, now Atari even makes a profit.
