Atari was a French holding company that published, among many other games, the RollerCoaster Tycoon series since Infogrames Interactive decided to forward the franchise to Frontier in 2003, with the first game in the series published under their label being RollerCoaster Tycoon 2: Time Twister.
The company began its roots in Utah. Two engineers, whose names were Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney, decided to form a videogame company in 1971. Its former name was Syzygy, then changed its name and became the famous Atari company.
The company declared bankruptcy in January 2013 and was forced to pass on or sell its franchises.
