Atari are acquiring Night Dive Studios

By - | Views: 30,923

Well that is certainly unexpected news. Atari has entered into an agreement to buy up Night Dive Studios. Night Dive Studios are responsible for the upcoming System Shock remake, Forsaken Remastered, Turok and Turok 2 remasters, Blood Fresh Supply, Quake remaster and many more.

Atari already owned a minority stake in Night Dive and they will now have 100%.

From the press release:

Wade Rosen, Chairman and CEO of Atari, commented: “Night Dive’s proven expertise and successful track record in commercializing retro IP is well-aligned with Atari’s strategy and I am confident that their combined talent, technology and IP portfolio will contribute to Atari’s future success.”

Stephen Kick and Larry Kuperman, principals of Night Dive commented: “Night Dive and Atari have a long history together and we know that Atari shares our passion for retro games and our focus on producing high-quality new and remastered games that do justice to the original IP. As we look to grow our business and expand our capabilities, we could think of no better long-term partner than Atari.”

According to Yahoo Finance, Night Dive Studios reported a revenue of $3 million USD for 2022, and Atari will acquire them for an initial $10 million USD half in cash and half in Atari shares, plus an "earn-out" of up to $10 million USD in cash over the next three years based on Night Dive's performance. This means if Night Dive do well, they'll get more money.

The acquisition is expected to be completed in April 2023.

Yup, for both Turok 1 and 2, they have various upgrades.

What Atari classics do we want to see remastered?

The last decent Asteroid’s game I saw was the one released by Ambrosia Software, that was later open sourced.

And there was a two player variation I seem to remember having a lot of fun with on the PC, cannot remember the name as it was released about the time when Worms and Worms Reloaded were still very popular, so probably ancient.

What? Atari is alive? I thought that only were releasing their old games and the vcs.
It's a zombie company eating another company. Hopefully don't become a zombie too.

Does Turok 2 have a native Linux version? On GOG I only see one for Turok...

I mean kinda it's more like a company bought Atari name back in the early 00s so it's more like they are a corporate company wearing Atari corpse

Funny. Does that mean that they will finish Blood: Fresh Supply which according to Night Dive was abandoned due to Atari killing the project?
