NEW YORK OCTOBER 29th 2020
ATARI VCS, LLC has announced that it has secured air cargo space to fly in classic joysticks for the new Atari VCS console, to its fulfillment centre in the US.
Release of the new VCS system had been planned for October however delays caused by sourcing parts for the classic-style joystick has prevented shipment.
Atari now plans to start completing original Indiegogo back orders from the middle of November, providing that there are no further delays. Orders will be sent out in no particular order.
Backers should get their new consoles in their homes well before Christmas however no news yet on how this will impact the retail launch. Atari will certainly want to cash in on Christmas sales, so we can probably expect retail shipments to move as soon as the last backer order is boxed up and out the door.
We’ll bring you further updates as we get them.
