Steven-

It may mean nothing. Inforgrames, which published Northern Expansion (and maybe Gold) legally changed their name to Atari about a month and a half ago. T

hey bought the Atari naming rights when they purchased Hasbro Interactive and started publishing their "extreme" titles such as Unreal Tournament and Neverwinter Nights under the atari logo. Finally, as their stick has been sinking (and probably in part due to some of the anti_French sentimentality that's been hanging around the US since our overthrow of the Iraqi government), they decided to go with a more well known gaming company name.

Thanks, Colin,

Yeah, nothing beats being known as the company that put out "ET".

What this really means is that Majesty has now had what may be a record number of publishers.

Majesty started with Ripcord (owned by Panasonic) but before the game was completed they went under. It was picked up by Hasbro Interactive, who was picked up by Infogrames, who changed their name to Atari.
