In an exclusive interview with GamesBeat at E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) 2017, Chesnais confirmed that the company is indeed working on a new gaming console.
What hasn't been expanded upon is whether this new machine will go down a similar route to Nintendo's NES Mini or if Atari are creating a more modern machine.

This follows a recent teaser video published by Atari for a product named the Ataribox.
Despite how insane it sounds to hear that Atari of all companies is trying to get back into the console race, it's actually within the realm of possibility. Beyond that, Chesnais offered no other information aside from saying it will be based on "PC technology" and that it will be revealed at a later date. That mini-retro console was a big hit despite only coming with 30 games and having wired controllers with short cables. Chesnais subsequently bought the company which VentureBeat reports is now profitable.

Brand licensing has also been more of a priority, with the Atari name planned for use in the upcoming Blade Runner 2049 film.
This is exactly the path Microsoft and Sony took when Xbox One and PlayStation 4 were still in development.
