Atari is getting a massive historical game collection for its 50th anniversary

Atari is 50 years old and to celebrate, the company has teamed up with the retro game experts at Digital Eclipse on a new anniversary collection spanning five decades of gaming history. It has the somewhat awkward title Atari 50: the anniversary partybut it also sounds a lot more complicated than a typical classic game bundle. Atari 50 will feature over 90 games – including six new titles “inspired by the classics” – from consoles such as the 2600, Jaguar and Lynx, along with archival photos, images and even interviews.

If the name Digital Eclipse sounds familiar, it’s probably because the studio has made a name for itself with thoughtful, well-executed classic game collections like the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary CollectionThe Disney Afternoon Collectionand the coming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection† “When it comes to emulation or bringing back classics or really doing some sort of remastering or reimagining, I don’t know if there’s anyone out there who does it better than Digital Eclipse, so they were always our first choice,” Atari CEO Wade Rosen told Game Informer

Atari 50 is expected to launch in November for just about every modern platform: the PS4, PS5, Xbox, PC, Nintendo Switch, and even the Atari VCS.
