This will serve as consideration for the license to develop and publish the extremely well-known titles of Goon Squad and Roller Coaster Tycoon. Additionally, revenue shares will also be payable to the company after gross revenues generated by the newly developed Blockchain games exceed a total of $500 000.
The partners have also agreed to engage in a memorandum of understanding in order to develop long-lasting strategic partnership and explore new and exciting mutual opportunities and innovations in the Gaming Industry, Blockchain development and other areas. Atari’s CEO, Frederic Chesnais stated:
“This partnership is a testament to the increasing role of Blockchain Technology in game development and the digital entertainment industry. It’s our mutual pleasure to enter this long-term strategic relationship with Animoca Brands. This will allow us to become shareholders in one of the most talented innovators in the growing world of decentralized gaming. It’s our biggest hope that this agreement will set the foundations for many other Atari products to see the light of day.”

But the biggest benefiary will most likely be gamers. Gamers from all corners of the world will have the opportunity to enjoy games, despite local laws or other obstacles. The Blockchain Revolution is comming!
