Atari’s officially backed out of Europe, with Namco Bandai now handling Atari titles in the region.

According to this MCV post, Distribution Partners (or Namco Bandai Partners) will be headed up by former Take Two, THQ and EA exec John Galloway in Europe.

“We believe that DP will become a wholly-owned Namco Bandai games company soon, but this process requires time and we will comment further when we have an anticipated closing date,” said Atari’s European marketing boss David Miller this week.

Atari will still operate as a brand in the US.

More through there. So long, Atari. Was fun.

Thanks, scratchy.
