AOL Buys From Infogrames/Atari

The troubled video gaming firm Infogrames, the parent of Atari, has sold a bunch of its assets, and as part of that, has sold its casual gaming site to AOL. No specific sale pricing was disclosed, but sold this and two other assets for a total of about $25.4 million. Its game franchise TimeShift has been sold to publisher Vivendi, while THQ has acquired the rights to other franchise Stuntman. In addition, THQ has also acquired the Texas-based development studio Paradigm Entertainment from Infogrames.
AOL has already started using the domain name to push people to AOL Games.
