Back up your Atari games on GOG, just in case, since the news also indicate that the parent company isn't doing well either.
Atari U.S. operation files for bankruptcy

The U.S. operations of iconic but long-troubled video game maker Atari have filed for bankruptcy in an effort to break free from their debt-laden French parent.

Atari Inc. and three of its affiliates filed petitions for Chapter 11 reorganization in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York late Sunday.

Its leaders hope to break the American business free from French parent Atari S.A. and in the next few months find a buyer to take the company private. They hope to grow a modest business focused on digital and mobile platforms, according to a knowledgeable person not authorized to discuss the matter privately.

(snip)

It's not yet clear who might step up to buy Atari Inc., although Wilson will probably seek backers to help him keep control. It's also possible the company could be sold to another buyer, whole or in pieces.

Atari's remaining French businesses would probably seek legal protection to find a buyer or dissolve in that country.

Representatives for Atari S.A. and Bluebay did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

No need to back up. Any legally licensed games are still legally licensed. However, for anybody with an eye on an Atari game, now might be a good time to buy it.


EDIT: I mean no more than usual. It's always a good idea.

Darklands. I guess it's time for me to get Darklands.
Maybe CD Project Red could buy up all the failing game companies and move to take over the (gaming) world ... :)
