Just months after poaching SCE WWS president Phil Harrison from Sony, hiring EA vet David Gardner as CEO and appointing a former Apple exec to its team, the Atari reformation continues – the company has hired SingStar director Paulina Bozek to head up a new online games studio.
The new studio will be based in London and focused on new online titles. In an official announcement Atari said the team would "focus on innovating and developing mass-market consumer games and services for online-enabled devices including personal computers and game consoles".
Bozek has overseen the SingStar franchise as executive producer and game director for the past six years, managing its growth from single PS2 release to a multi-SKU monster that recently launched on PS3 with a song download store. She started her career at Ubisoft Montreal and won the first ever BAFTA Interactive New Talent Award in 2004.
