Atari-Themed Gaming Hotels Coming To Eight Major US Cities
In a time when the likes of PlayStation, Nintendo, and Xbox reign supreme in the console gaming market, there is one name that is still very much recognizable. Atari hasn’t exactly been at the forefront of gaming for some time, but its impact on the community is still felt and will be for years to come. That said, the company has officially announced that they will be opening gaming hotels in eight major US cities.
The rights to build Atari-themed hotels were acquired by GSD Group, and with this being a licensing deal, it is unlikely that Atari will have much to do with the actual hotels, if anything at all. The hotels will feature “fully immersive experiences” that include virtual reality, augmented reality, and much more. Some of the locations will also be outfitted with venues to host esports events.
The first Atari hotel will break ground in Phoenix, AZ later this year. Following this, locations will also pop up in Austin, Chicago, Denver, Las Vegas, San Francisco, San Jose, and Seattle. Needless to say, if the above photo is indicative of anything, we are one step closer to living in the Blade Runner universe and that much closer to a cyberpunk reality. Fun times are ahead, and it will be interesting to see what comes of the Atari hotels.
