Originally Atari was looking to sell of its catalog as well as its IP to pay off debts. The thing is that only 15 bids were received and Atari refused all of them. Atari did sell off several titles and some IP, but the majority of the money that it needs to raise is going to have to come from the firm generating new revenue and it will be interesting to see how that pans out for the company going forward.
