U.S. Bankruptcy Court documents have revealed which companies will be picking up certain franchises from Atari later this week, with studios including Wargaming, Rebellion Interactive, and Stardock. Earlier this year, the U.S. branch of Atari filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Despite reaching out to 180 potential purchasers, Atari didn't receive any suitable offers, and so has now decided to auction off all of its assets. As part of this latest filing, it has been revealed which companies have successfully bid on the following assets: - Backyard Sports franchise: Successful bid from Epic Gear - Humongous franchise, Fatty Bear's Birthday Surprise, Math Gran Prix: Successful bid from Tommo Inc - Total Annihilation franchise: Successful bid from Wargaming World, with back-up bid from Uber Entertainment - Battlezone franchise: Successful bid from Rebellion Interactive Games, with back-up bid from Tommo Inc - Master of Orion franchise: Successful bid from Wargaming World, with back-up bid from Stardock Systems - Moonbase Commander franchise: Successful bid from Rebellion Interactive Games - Star Control franchise: Successful bid from Stardock Systems, with back-up bid from On The Go Technology There was no word on the potential sales of the RollerCoaster Tycoon and Test Drive franchises as-of-yet, nor do the documents state how much has been bid for each asset. The sale of the Total Annihilation franchise to Wargaming is particularly interesting, given that the series was originally created by Chris Taylor at Cavedog Entertainment, who then went on to found Gas Powered Games, which is now owned by Wargaming. The full sale hearing is due to take place later this week on July 24, 2013, when the asset sales will be finalized.
