Atari said the bankruptcy proceedings were inevitable as it sought to protect itself from creditors with its “strain on cash resources” due to “adverse trading conditions and limited development funds.”

As LA Times reported, a $28-million credit facility with BlueBay lapsed in Dec. 31.

Jim Wilson, the Chief Executive of Atari said that seeking bankruptcy protection was the best option for protecting the company and its shareholders, and that the company would continue to seek to maximize its proceeds.

The statement mentioned, “The Chapter 11 process constitutes the most strategic option for Atari’s U.S. operations, as they look to preserve their inherent value and unlock revenue potential unrealized while under the control of Atari SA.”

Famous games by Atari include Pong, Asteroids, Centipede, Missile Command, and Battlezone.
