Atari layoffs and studio closures

Last month, Atari decided to close its California and Massachusetts offices due to the company's financial difficulties. (story here.) The company has historically been reluctant to make use of its old IP and titles. With a new stated focus on a "strategic mandate" to return "results beyond expectations," it seems reasonable to assume that Microprose titles will continue to languish unused.

How Stardock's negotiations for the MoM license are impacted by this we do not know.
