Paris, December 16, 2020 – Atari, one of the world’s most iconic consumer brands and interactive entertainment producers, announces the shipping of the Atari VCS to its Indiegogo backers as well as the integration of Google Chrome to enrich the streaming services, browsing, and browser-based applications. Finally, the Atari VCS Companion mobile app is available now on Google Play and the App Store, providing users with a virtual mouse and keyboard to navigate the Atari VCS content.

Shipping to the backers of the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign has begun. In this context, Atari will recognize €2.5M of revenue in its current financial year, previously recorded as deferred revenue in its consolidated financials for the year ended March 31, 2020. The ramp-up of deliveries will be progressive and will reach a steady state during the first quarter of 2021, with the delivery of the direct orders made through www.atarivcs.com and shipments to Gamestop, Walmart.com, Microcenter, other US distributors as well as Bluemouth, our Australian distribution partner.

The integration of Google Chrome as the native browser on the Atari VCS takes full advantage of the streaming capabilities of the system’s AMD Ryzen R1606G CPU. This allows Atari VCS users to access streaming services and web-based productivity options, like Google Workspace, Google’s cloud-based communication and collaboration solution that includes apps such as Gmail, Calendar, Chat, Docs, Drive, and Meet. The Atari VCS will be compatible with most PC peripherals, so users will be able to connect a webcam for Google Meet video conferencing and use a mouse and keyboard to undertake more text-heavy tasks. The full press release by Google and Atari is available here.

Atari has also announced the release of the Atari VCS Companion mobile app, which will be available to download on Google Play and the App Store. The VCS Companion App provides users with a virtual mouse and keyboard for navigating Chrome and other apps on the VCS, using a smartphone or tablet. During the last few weeks a lot of new content, in particular games, has been revealed, to be added to the Atari VCS, some of it exclusive (further details on atarivcs.medium.com).

Atari will continue to regularly enrich the content offering accessible on the Atari VCS. Equipped with the power of a family PC at the heart of the Atari VCS, gaming modes, flexible configuration of operating systems or memory, as well as 4K streaming capabilities, the Atari VCS is an openly novel entertainment device, offering a large variety of content and possibilities of use to fulfill the needs of all family members.

Atari: Expansion of the partnership with Animoca Brands

 

Atari: Expansion of the partnership with Animoca Brands

  • Atari and Animoca Brands expand their collaboration in the area of blockchain games
  • Animoca Brands becomes the preferred supplier of blockchain gaming content on the Atari VCS
  • Non-exclusive distribution agreement for the Atari VCS in Asia

Paris, August 4, 2020 – The Atari Group, one of the world’s most iconic consumer brands and interactive entertainment producers, announces a significant expansion of its existing partnership with Animoca Brands, a leading digital entertainment company specializing in blockchain and gamification.

In December 2018, Atari had announced a licensing agreement with Animoca Brands for the development of blockchain versions of its mobile games RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch and Goon Squad.

In light of the launch of the virtual world The Sandbox (with a wider launch scheduled for Q4 2020), Atari and Animoca Brands have agreed to expand their collaboration, with the global (ex-China) licensing agreement now including 15 new titles from the Atari catalog (amongst which are the iconic games Centipede, Pong, Breakout, Asteroids, and Missile Command). Animoca Brands will have the right to develop and publish blockchain versions of these titles, which will feature the integration of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The term of the agreement extends through to January 31, 2025. As consideration for the expanded full license to develop and publish the games, Animoca Brands will pay a minimum guarantee against future revenues to Atari payable through the issuance of 18.7 million shares of the company priced at 0.21 Australian dollars per share.

Atari and Animoca Brands have also agreed to team up in order to promote the access to blockchain gaming content on the Atari VCS. As one of the world’s leading players in this area with games including F1® Delta Time and The Sandbox, Animoca Brands represents an ideal partner to enrich the Atari VCS ecosystem, whose objective is to attract the largest possible number of blockchain enthusiasts on its platform. Animoca Brands will become the preferred provider of blockchain gaming content with an exclusive featuring on the Atari VCS homepage. The term of this exclusivity agreement extends through to September 30, 2022. As consideration for this exclusivity, Animoca Brands will pay a minimum guarantee against future revenues to Atari of 320,000 USD, payable at its discretion in cash or through the issuance of 2.2 million shares of the company priced at 0.21 Australian dollars per share before July 31, 2021.

As part of this new agreement, Atari and Animoca Brands have also entered into a non-exclusive online distribution agreement for the Atari VCS for Asia (excluding Australia and New-Zealand). Animoca Brands will set up and operate its own online retail store covering the region. The agreement takes effect as of the date of signing and extends through to September 30, 2022.

Lastly, Atari and Animoca Brands have reached an agreement in principle for a token swap between the Atari Token and tokens owned by Animoca Brands, in limited amounts of less than 100,000 USD.

We are thrilled to strengthen our partnership with Animoca Brands, whose vision for the integration of blockchain technology into video games is perfectly aligned with ours. When we signed the initial agreement, we always envisaged to expand it to the most iconic games of the Atari catalog to turn them into blockchain games” declared Frederic Chesnais, CEO of Atari. “Our ambition for the Atari VCS is to develop an ecosystem that gives users access to the largest number of tools for creation and entertainment. Blockchain games inside a virtual world are a perfect example for the types of entertainment that we want to propose to the Atari VCS userbase. It was the natural choice to ask our partner Animoca Brands, whose leadership in blockchain gaming is unquestioned, to offer their blockchain gaming content directly on the Atari VCS.

Yat Siu, co-founder and chairman of Animoca Brands, said: “This significant expansion of our partnership with Atari allows Animoca Brands to leverage some of the greatest ever classic games into our blockchain strategy and on our popular platforms, including the hypercasual gaming platform Gamee and the digital collectibles platform Quidd. We are very excited at the opportunity to catapult these nostalgic, history-making games into the future.”

Disclaimer / Risk factors:

The realization of the plans, and their operational budget and financing plan remain inherently uncertain, and the non-realization of these assumptions may impact their value.

With regards to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), this virus is creating important disruptions in China and by repercussion in the whole world. The Group is exposed to the same risks as all the other actors and remains extremely vigilant to these external events, which can have a temporary impact on the profitability of the current financial year. These disruptions may in fact have an impact, notably with regards to the timetable, on the sourcing, production and shipment of the Atari VCS and of other Atari licensed products commercialized by our partners, as well as on the renewals of these licensing agreements, generators of profits and royalties for the Group. The pursuit of production and deliveries remains dependent on the continuity of production activities and international transport flows. Atari will continue to keep its clients and shareholders informed as the situation evolves. Furthermore, the Group continues to work on the renewal of licensing agreements.
