Atari Acquires Night Dive Studios

March 23, 2023 by Alex Novichenko

Atari has agreed to acquire Night Dive Studios in a move that aligns with Atari's retro-focused growth strategy and grants access to Night Dive's intellectual property, including System Shock, as well as its proprietary KEX engine and publishing capabilities. The acquisition is expected to be completed in April 2023.

Night Dive Studios is currently working on a remake of System Shock, which was delayed from its original release date in March to May 30th on PC, with plans to release it on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S at a later date. Both companies share a passion for retro games and producing high-quality new and remastered games that do justice to the original IP.
