Atari has revealed that it has acquired more than 100 PC and console games from the 80s and 90s for the purpose of expanding the digital and physical distribution of these classic titles, creating new games based on the IPs, and exploring brand and merchandising collaborations. Some of the games that Atari has acquired include titles from the Bubsy, Hardball, Demolition Racer series, as well as the 1942: Pacific Air War, F-117A, and F-14 air combat series. Atari has even acquired the trademark to the Accolade and GTI brands, with the former being a US-based video game developer and publisher from 1984 until 2000.

“This is a deep catalog that includes groundbreaking and award-winning titles from Accolade, Infogrames and Microprose,” said Atari CEO Wade Rosen. “Many of these titles are a part of Atari history, and fans can look forward to seeing many of these games re-released in physical and digital formats, and in some cases, even ported to modern consoles.”

From an Atari press release:

Atari is undertaking a multi-year effort to transform the company behind one of the world’s most iconic brands. An important part of that effort involves expanding Atari’s video game business, leveraging the company’s large catalog of IP to release classic games and bring new, high-quality games to market. Atari’s vast library of IP is the vault from which new and exciting game development ideas are pulled – reinventing old classics, reimagining storylines, and developing entirely new narratives inspired by the games that set the course for an entire industry.
