It looks like there’s still a bit of money to be made in the E.T. license, so long as you don’t mind said money being made on filthy, recently unearthed copies of the property’s ill-fated Atari 2600 video game.

Atari is still making games believe it or not. Their latest offering is called Minimum and it's a third-person, 5-on-5 battle-arena game.

So, Atari U.S. as we know it is going the way of the dodo but, like its fine feathered friend the Phoenix, the company hopes to rise from the ashes anew.
Special Forces: Team X is the upcoming third-person shooter from Micropose, Atari and Zombie Studios. It pits players against players in typical arena-based, hardcore shooting action with lots of guns, dogs, explosives, chainsaws and air strikes.

Primal Rage II is one of those rare canceled video games that has earned an almost legendary status. It was slated to be the follow-up to a beloved fighting game that featured mammoth dinosaurs. Other than an article or two hyping the production of the game in the mid-90's, however, Primal Rage II basically disappeared from the face of the Earth.
