Atari Confirms New Game Console In Development

Others had no idea what the video was showing about a "brand new Atari product years in the making".

It is too soon to report any development on Atari's new console as Chesnais said as its still in the early stages. In an interview at E3 2017, CEO Fred Chesnais confirmed that Atari is "back in the hardware business", and now working on a brand new games console. At the recently concluded Electronic Entertainment Expo 2017, Chesnais told Venture Beat that the video game company is "back in the hardware business".

But Atari's claiming that this new console was "years in the making".

Given that Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo are now truly cemented as giants of the video games console industry, it looks unlikely that Atari plans to compete with them.

Would you be interested in a retro Atari console? It sounds like the Ataribox is being developed in-house, and will hopefully boast improved emulation, more features, and better build quality.

All we can do is wait and see if Ataribox will be a triumphant return for the legendary gaming brand or more of an E.T. sort of deal for the company.

After Atari filed for bankruptcy protection back in 2013, Chesnais bought a 25.23% stake in a bid to save the company and vowed to make it great again.

Based on what was shown in the teaser, it's entirely possible that Atari is looking to cash in on the retro revival.
