Atari Plans to Auction Off Game Assets in July

Atari will be selling off all of its game assets at a scheduled four day auction in July. The auction is expected to net a minimum of a little over $22 Million. Atari filed for bankruptcy in January and as such, the auction still has to be approved by the courts on June 11th.

It’s clear now that the original intention to sell the company as a whole and keep it operating isn’t going to happen. Instead, there’s a chance some of its best known games will get a new lease of life, but under the guidance of a new publisher.
