Secret Atari project revealed

MCV can reveal that Atari is to roll out a major new online initiative in the summer which will allows users to create their own gaming experiences. The project will initially be PC only, but Atari Online Entertainment senior vice president Chris Bergstresser has hinted at much bigger things to come.

“Let’s just say it will be PC to start with,” he said. “I can’t and I won’t speak for Europe but presumably if it is a success in the US then yes, it will be coming to Europe. We would quickly open it up to other territories."

“Phil Harrison had this big announcement of Game 3.0 and I think its great that he’s announced that because it will lend legitimacy to what we’re doing. But it goes further than that,” added Bergstresser. “We feel user generated content is not just something you just let people dabble in, we feel that it is something where you give people the tools to do whatever the hell they want."
