Atari announced it has raised $13 million through the sale of TimeShift and Stuntman. The latter transaction involved selling the sequel to the popular 2002 PlayStation 2 game to another publisher. At the same time THQ revealed it has bought Stuntman 2 from, which is in development for next-generation consoles at Atari-owned Paradigm Entertainment. THQ also announced that it has “exercised its option to acquire Paradigm Entertainment.”
Kelly Flock, THQ’s executive vice president of worldwide publishing, said “Stuntman is a great complement to our growing stable of original content targeting the core gamer on next-generation systems.” You might remember Paradigm from the amazing N64 game Pilotwings 64 and other multiplatform games.
