In an exclusive interview, Atari CEO Fred Chesnais tells GamesBeat that the company is in the process of creating a new game console. This move could cash in on the retro game boom, which has been fueling a lot of interest in classic games. The company’s NES Classic Edition has become wildly popular, and its CEO says the company is ready to take advantage of it.
Atari is a good example of a company that has managed to avoid bankruptcy. It filed for Chapter 11 protection in 2013, and since then, it has turned a profit. In addition, the company is launching mobile games and licensing its brand to other businesses. Recently, it licensed the Atari brand to the Blade Runner 2049 movie.
separating a games division from a games division
One of the earliest video game companies, Infinity Ward, is now re-establishing itself as a separate division. The company previously made the Call of Duty games. Two of its founders were recently fired and the company has shifted its focus to other areas. Infinity Ward has made some of the most successful video games in recent history. The company also owns Blizzard Entertainment, which is one of its cash cows. The new company will still have separate divisions for internal and licensed properties.
While the blockchain division will focus on the blockchain, the games division will focus on the games. The blockchain division can be integrated into the core games. The two divisions can work together and help each other grow. Ultimately, Atari will be able to focus on its core business of gaming.
Sony has also refocused its PlayStation operation on the West. It wants to take advantage of the high number of PlayStation 4 users in the West. The console gaming business is $30 billion worldwide. It’s one of the few sectors with a clear path to profitability. While Japan has become less of a console gaming market, the West is still a lucrative market.
In an interview with Venturebeat, Atari CEO Fred Chesnais talks about his company’s upcoming public sale and upcoming games. In addition, he reveals that Fabricant and Atari are launching a line of fashion items.

Atari is now a profitable company with no debt and $20 million in revenue. It plans to get back into the hardware business with the launch of the Atari VCS in 2019. The company also plans to start making games again. It has made original titles like Days of Doom, and remakes of classics such as Tempest 4000. Atari has also been making money from its Rollercoaster Tycoon simulation games, including the popular Rollercoaster Tycoon Classic. The game has also been featured in movies such as Ready Player One and Blade Runner 2049.
Atari CEO Fred Chesnais has been with the company for about five years. Previously, he served as the CEO of Atari Interactive and was the COO and CFO of Atari S.A. He is a believer in the power of blockchain and decentralized technology. This is why the company has recently announced the creation of two new divisions: Atari Gaming and Atari Blockchain. In the future, he plans to focus on these new divisions.
Atari Token public sale slated for Oct. 29
The Atari Token is an alternative currency that can be used to purchase and sell video games. It can also be used in online gaming and can be exchanged for collectible items. The company plans to start selling the token in November 2020, but the exact date of the public sale has yet to be announced.
The company aims to list the ATRI on as many platforms as possible. It wants it to be a medium of exchange for other currencies, and is working on creating innovative games to promote the currency. One of the games is called ‘Atari Casino,’ where players stake their ATRI against other players and compete for prizes. Atari’s developers plan to add more games utilizing the ATRI currency, including standard casino games and innovative gambling games.
The company is also working to expand its partnership with Animoca Brands Corporation. The two companies have agreed to swap US$625,000 in tokens. Atari will receive 7,812,500 ATRI tokens and Animoca Brands will receive 5,000,000 REVV tokens. The tokens will be valued at US$0.025 each. The deal will lock up 90% of each type of token for 18 months, and the remaining 10% will be released on the first day of listing.
Atari was one of the first companies to create and launch arcade machines. It also helped pioneer the home video game industry. It created the first programmable home system and developed video games. It was purchased by Warner Communications in 1976.
Fabricant and Atari launch fashion line
The Fabricant, a blockchain-powered digital fashion house, and Atari have teamed up to create a digital fashion line. The collaboration is based on the IP of video game pioneer Atari. The collection will feature Atari-inspired clothing, including robes, gloves, and headpieces.
The Fabricant allows users to create one version of each garment, which will be minted as digital couture and sold as NFTs. The creators of these NFTs will receive royalties for sales. The goal of this venture is to counter the high price and secrecy of traditional physical fashion design. It also hopes to appeal to fashion lovers who are not tech-savvy.
The Atari NFT fashion line includes robes, sports-like gloves, and headpieces for virtual avatars. The line is expected to be sold in upcoming video games that utilize digital avatars. Fabricant has also partnered with hotels to create Atari-themed destinations. Another venture, called Animoca, creates a virtual world called The Sandbox.
The Fabricant also features digital garments that can seamlessly be superimposed onto still photos, making them difficult to distinguish from their physical counterparts. Users can even send photos of themselves to the designer and request a digital garment superimposed on the photo. This innovative idea is an exciting development for the fashion industry, as it gives individuals the opportunity to participate in the fashion industry without the traditional boundaries.
Atari recently entered a partnership with leading blockchain gaming platform Enjin, which will allow developers to create games based on the Atari brand. This partnership will also help increase brand recognition and awareness. In addition to the Atari Token, the blockchain fashion line will also feature a decentralized casino based on the Atari brand. The virtual casino will likely include classic Atari games such as blackjack, roulette, and poker.
