Has ex-Sony executive Phil Harrison run his course at the newly energized Atari already? The publisher announced today that Harrison has officially been moved from acting president of Atari to a non-executive director of the publisher. Atari claims Harrison will still continue to "assist, support and guide the Company's strategy," without getting into specifics of his role going forward.

In its fiscal year 2008-2009 earnings release, Atari quietly mentioned the cancellation of several unannounced projects that did "not meet higher return on investment criteria and require significant working capital investments." In other words: Atari didn't feel the games deserved the amount of time and investment it would take to guarantee they'd become good games. I wonder what was canned?

Were you working on one of the cancelled Atari projects? If you can provide any insight, e-mail me.
