Launch calendar for the Atari VCS

  • Arrival in the United States of the first units for professional use
  • Delivery in the fall for the retail units, with a priority for the Indiegogo campaign
  • Start of sales campaigns in the summer for delivery at the end of the year

Paris, June 26, 2020 – The Atari Group, one of the world’s most iconic consumer brands and interactive entertainment producers, announces that it has received delivery in the United States of the first VCS units from the initial production batch of 500 units.

These first 96 units will be allocated in priority to professional partners, mainly developers, testers, media, influencers, and retailers, to develop and support the Atari VCS ecosystem as well as the launch of the upcoming sales campaigns. These units are not intended for private use.

The first units for the general public will be delivered this fall, together with the remaining units from the initial production batch. They will be allocated in priority to the 10,000 pre-orders from the Indiegogo campaign.

During the summer, Atari will launch various public sale campaigns, mainly in the United States, for delivery at the end of 2020.

The pursuit of production and deliveries remains dependent on the continuity of production activities and international transport flows. Atari will continue to keep its clients and shareholders informed of the evolution of the situation.
