In an unexpected turn of events, Atari has pulled out of E3. Although anyone could speculate on why they did such a thing, we’ll leave that for later. Although we do not have any confirmation, we do have a quote from Atari public reltaions.
Atari said that it was a “proactive decision to attend but not exhibit at this year’s E3 event.” and that there are “other selling and marketing initiatives” for them to spend time on. Atari may not be exhibiting at the event, but they are attending. No presentation, just presence. With Champions Online and Ghostbusters around the corner, they’ve got plenty to show off. We’ll be letting you know if they give an official reason. Good luck, Atari.
