Aug. 13, 2004 Atari, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATAR) and Firaxis Games announced today that Sid Meier’s Pirates!(R) for the Xbox(R) video game system from Microsoft is currently in development and is scheduled to release worldwide in spring 2005. Sid Meier’s Pirates! for Windows will ship to retail stores worldwide on November 16, 2004. The award-winning 1987 smash hit game, Sid Meier’s Pirates!, received unprecedented critical acclaim and set the industry standard for innovative game design with its unique blend of open-ended role-playing, real-time adventures and thrilling action sequences. "There has been great anticipation for the long awaited return of Pirates! and to see what the team at Firaxis has been able to accomplish with the franchise," said Nancy MacIntyre, vice president of marketing, Atari, Inc. "We are pleased to follow-up what is sure to be a great PC launch this holiday with an Xbox title next year."

Players test their skills as a sea captain exploring the high seas and exotic ports in a richly detailed 3-D world.
