Atari Box Teaser

Atari released a very short video earlier this month to tease an upcoming console called the Atari Box. An website was also revealed. The short video shows a device with both a plastic and wooden exterior. Lately, Atari has been busy brining games like RollerCoast Tycoon to Android and iOS devices so a new console announcement is a surprise.

Atari CEO Fred Chesnais has confirmed to GamesBeat that Atari is back in the hardware business. He also revealed that the new console will be "based on PC technology." Other than this not much is known about Atari's plans for the device.

The teaser says the Atari Box has been "years in the making."
