News: Not yet, but soon. Oh, and a new Earthworm Jim game is in the works.
After announcing terrible financial news last Friday, Atari is now talking about selling off their internal studios.
Atari CEO Bruno Bonnell spoke to UK game magazine MCV and announced this plan, while adding "[T]hat doesn't mean that we're immediately putting a ?For Sale' sign on them. They still have important projects to finish for us."
The article also shed some light on some heretofore unknown projects, including new sequels to the Earthworm Jim series (on undisclosed platforms) and the Test Drive series (on current-generation consoles).
The studios in question include:
Reflections Interactive, based in Newcastle, currently working on Driver: Parallel Lines.
Melbourne House, based in Australia, working on current-gen versions of Test Drive.
Paradigm, based in Dallas, currently working on Stuntman 2 and Battlezone.
Shiny Studios, based in Laguna Beach, currently working on one undisclosed project and new versions of Earthworm Jim.
Eden Studios, based in Lyon, working on Test Drive for next-generation systems.
I'm sure we'll have more Atari related news soon.
