Atari’s hardware division, lead by Michael Arzt, is expected to start contributing to group revenue in the fiscal year 2019/2020.
The roll out of the new console is expected to be around the end of 2019, with first units shipping to Indiegogo backers. A full commercial launch is expected in 2020, with talks with potential distributors ongoing.
The new console will now ship with AMD’s new Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC, and there have also been some subtle tweaks to the case design.
We’ll be bringing you updates on the VCS as they happen, and we’ll be taking a closer look at what we know so far in the next issue of Atari User Magazine.
