Phil Harrison’s role as president of Infogrames is done and dusted, Atari said in a statement this morning.

“Because of a shift of business operations to the US, Phil Harrison will move from the role of President to that of non-executive Director of the Group,” said the firm.

“As all Board members, he will continue to assist, support and guide the Company’s strategy.”

We’re saying nothing. More on Kotaku.

    Oh dear. Poor old Phil! And it all sounded so promising when he first took the job.

    It’s looking worse and worse for Atari again – I’m left wondering if they’re long for this world. Again.

    The brand name Atari is like a cursed monkey hand that brings death to any publisher daft enough to covet it.

    They had big plans about turning it around though, Geki. Which all appear to have come to naught.

    I hope another publisher picks up Test Drive.

    Atari seems to be going in the right direction at least, even if they were at the beginning of a long road.

    Perhaps this has something to do with them getting out of Europe.

    Just think – that curse is all because of Blade Runner . . .

    Come back to PlayStation Phil, all is forgiven. Sir Howard needs to make this guy an offer he cannot refuse. Like, come back to SCEI or I’ll put a round in your knee.
