Atari revives Infogrames and acquires Totally Reliable Delivery Service

By - | Views: 30,687

Atari are trying more and more to make a proper full comeback now and they've just announced a revival of Infogrames along with acquiring Totally Reliable Delivery Service.

Infogrames returns as a new publishing label, which was well known from the 1980s to early 2000s, with plans to acquire various IP and publish games directly, that "fall outside the core portfolio of IP associated with the Atari brand" and they see "game preservation as a core component of its mission".

“For decades, Infogrames built a reputation as a publisher and developer of amazing and eclectic games, and we are excited to bring it back,” said Wade Rosen, Chairman and CEO of Atari. 

As part of this, they've also swallowed up Totally Reliable Delivery Service (which has Linux support) from tinyBuild as their first purchase.

“With Totally Reliable Delivery Service, Infogrames is starting off with a strong IP that has a loyal and enthusiastic player base,” commented Geoffroy Châteauvieux, Manager of Infogrames LLC. “The Infogrames team will be able to expand upon the strong work of tinyBuild, and re-energize this high-potential franchise.”

In the last year or so we've seen Atari buy up Nightdive StudiosAwesomenauts, Swords & Soldiers and Digital Eclipse, and it seems they plan to keep going. Let's hope they don't end up as another Embracer Group that ends up being the cause of so many job losses they ended up splitting into three companies.

Back in the late 1990s, a lot of games publishers would send leftover press goodies to regular consumers if you sent them a polite letter about it. Infogrames would send out pin-badges featuring the armadillo.

Tell me they are also reviving Acclaim or Interplay and I'll go to the flea market looking for a 90's tracksuit to stay fresh.

That's kinda weird since "Atari" is Infogrames - they just changed their name to Atari after they bought the Atari assets when it went bust.

It'll be interesting what IPs they'll start releasing in Infogames since I haven't heard that name in a long time

Some of the games that were released from Nightdive Studios are pretty good and hopefully, that'll continue with Infogames.

They got my interrest... Are these decisions made with the Atari VCS in mind? It would mean great Linux support ootb.

Makes a weird kind of sense to me. Say I'm an Infogrames person, and we decided to buy the Atari stuff because dammit, can't let that stuff go down the tubes, and maybe it's an opportunity. So we gotta change our name to Atari, because otherwise selling Atari stuff will look unpersuasive. But I'm nostalgic about my original company with its old name; if I wasn't into nostalgia I wouldn't be doing Atari stuff, right? So once we get some success, I want to make something with the good old Infogrames name again too.

Judging by their blog post about it - https://atari.com/blogs/newsroom/atari-revives-infogrames-as-a-publishing-label - they're using a variant of the 80s/90s logo.

I hope being part of Atari means that Night Dive will return to making native Linux builds; they used to do it regularly, but not so much on newer releases:

Well, I think warmly about both brands, Atari and Infogrames. Naturally I will be watching closely what they are up to :)
