Atari has established two divisions with very different focuses and, as a result, now has a new CEO at the helm.
The retro-aligned company announced the shift this week, noting that it has established Atari Gaming and Atari Blockchain to group its two primary business focuses into their divisions.
As part of that, now-former CEO Frédéric Chesnais has stepped down to focus entirely on Atari’s blockchain dealings and licensing. In his place, board chairman Wade J. Rosen has stepped in as CEO.
The new Atari Gaming division aims to focus on expanding the market of retro games and will specifically see the company license its brands in games (as well as in the hotel and casino business), continue to develop free-to-play mobile games, and revitalize classic Atari IP with an expansion into the console and PC market.
This division also concerns itself with Atari’s retro-inspired console, the Atari VCS, and plans to expand its platform’s development tools.
While Atari Blockchain is chiefly concerned with products and services related to its Atari Token cryptocurrency, this division also aims to explore ways that crypto and blockchain can be used within games the Atari VCS.
