D&D exclusive to Atari till 2017

Atari's parent company Infogrames puts enough value in the Dungeons & Dragons franchise to strike a new deal with franchise owner Hasbro.

Under a new agreement between the two companies, Infogrames now has an exclusive license to create games in the D&D world until 2017.

We can glean what it's going to do with the license over the next ten years from what the deal covers, which is both current and future D&D projects - and IPs including Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights, which have been attached to some of the best PC fantasy RPGs ever - along with wireless and online Dungeons & Dragons games.
