Atari 50th: The Anniversary Celebration Brings 90 Classics to PS5, PS4 Later This Year

We hope you’re hungry for a retro treat, because Atari’s just announced a massive collection heading to modern platforms. Atari 50th: The Anniversary Celebration is a compilation that charts the company’s history, and it will include “more than 90 playable games”.

Going all the way back to the early 1970s, the collection will include ultra-early favorites all the way up to 90s classics, and there are even a few new games thrown in for good measure. What’s more interesting about this project, though, is the way it presents everything to the player through interactive timelines.

These will “combine historical trivia, digital artifacts, all-new video interviews, and playable games into one singular experience”, and you can get a sense of what that’ll be like in the above trailer. For anyone curious about Atari’s 50-year history in the industry, it looks like this will be well worth checking out.

It’s being handled by Digital Eclipse, and will feature games from the Atari Jaguar and Atari Lynx consoles for the first time in a compilation. It sounds like an insanely robust package, and it’s not too far away; it launches on PS5 and PS4 in Winter 2022.
