The return of Atari will include MMO
December 11th, 2008

The company that gave the world Pong back in 1972 is including massively multiplayer online games in its rollouts planned by new Atari President Phil Harrison, who helped build Sony Worldwide Studios into a leading game development factory. Yahoo! News reports today that Harrison says he believes the future of gaming is online:

Atari will publish Cryptic’s three upcoming games in 2009, 2010 and 2011 with the first out the gate the comic book heroes and villains of “Champions Online,” followed by “Star Trek Online” in 2010 and an unannounced MMO game for 2011.

With its early slate now set, and new internal game development under way at its new London studio and its established Eden Studio in Lyon, France, Atari’s management now has to deliver on its promise of better quality games.
