Wargaming, Stardock System vying for Atari assets

Auctions for Atari's assets have begun, with bidders such as Wargaming and Stardock Systems vying for the company's franchises, according to documents posted on Scribd.

Wargaming, the developer behind World of Tanks and World of Warplanes, is currently bidding on the Total Annihilation and Master of Orion franchises. Uber Entertainment, Inc., is listed as a back-up bidder on Total Annihilation, while Stardock is next for Master of Orion. Stardock — best known for strategy title Sins of a Solar Empire and the Galactic Civilizations series — has placed a bid on the Star Control franchise, of which On the Go Technology, LLC is the back-up bidder.

The sale hearing will take place July 24, where a judge will approve the highest bidders.

Atari's U.S. arm filed for bankruptcy in January of this year in an effort to "break free" from Atari S.A., its French parent company. The Wall Street Journal reported back in May that Atari would sell its assets individually in July. Total Annihilation was reportedly available for a minimum bid of $250,000; other assets, such as Rollercoaster Tycoon, were priced as high as $3.5 million.
