Atari has acquired an exclusive license for all assets of Wonder, the gaming company behind WonderOS, an Android-based hybrid mobile gaming and entertainment platform.

Atari anticipates incorporating the technology of WonderOS into the development of the upcoming Atari Video Computer System (Atari VCS), which will make the system available across mobile devices and further expand the capabilities and reach of the home gaming and entertainment system.

As the iconic Atari brand transcends generations and audiences, its growth continues with mobile gaming and re-entering the home gaming console market with the Atari VCS. The addition of WonderOS and mobile IP will make an important contribution as the company drives to make mobile gaming and content streaming persistent and pervasive for consumers.

Wonder was founded in 2016 by CEO Andy Kleinman, an entrepreneur and former executive of Disney and the mobile game companies Scopely and Zynga. “As a life-long gamer and fan of the brand, I can’t imagine a better company than Atari to be moving forward with,” said Kleinman. “I am confident that Atari is the right partner to bring Wonder’s promising technology to market.”

“Atari has strong mobile gaming business and deep experience as a publisher,” said Atari CEO Frédéric Chesnais. “Incorporating Wonder’s exciting technology will accelerate mobile integration within the Atari VCS platform, while better positioning Atari to capitalize on the promise offered by 5G digital cellular networks.”
