After going bankrupt and failing to find a buyer for its full portfolio, Atari decided today to sell all its franchises piece by piece. The minimum bid for the RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise is $3.5 million, while for Test Driver series is only $1.5 million. The auction will take place in July, only if a jugde will approve of the sale process in Atari’s hearing on June 11.
Atari filed for bankruptcy protection back in January, and had over 180 potential buyers, none of which were approved by Atari. They have also mentioned that they intend to sell smaller value games separate from the official auctions. It’s sad to see such an old company going down to drain.
