The Atari VCS has had a rocky development process. Unveiled in 2017 by Atari Gamebox and having received over US$3 million in crowdfunding, the console was made available for public pre-order last June. The US$249 console runs on an AMD Raven Ridge APU and Linux, while offering support for Steam and coming with 100 Atari classics pre-installed.
However, the VCS is still yet to be released. Citing the coronavirus pandemic, the VCS is seemingly now on indefinite hiatus having been slated for release last month. Now the console's chief architect, Rob Wyatt, has sued Atari Gamebox. As we reported in October, Wyatt resigned from the company for US$260,000 over unpaid salary and defamation.
