Atari, practically a French company!
It is worth noting that Atari was purchased by the French group Infogrames in 2008. Both companies were then merged although Atari remains almost completely French. On the 21st of January, 2013, its American subsidiaries, including Atari Inc. Atari Interactive Inc., Humongous and California U.S. Holdings Inc. filed for bankruptcy, breaking all ties with the French parent company, which has since been on the lookout for new shareholders. However, Atari seems to have found the perfect solution to revive its finances: the virtual gaming industry. Its partnership with Pariplay is a symbol of hope for its French directors, especially since their collaborator has been acquired by the U.S. publisher Majesco Entertainment Company, which has itself merged with ORID. The new organization is highly specialized in the development of casino games, which Atari intends to benefit from.
