“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be embarking on a new Matrix project,” said Jim Caparro, President and Chief Executive Officer of Atari. “The Wachowski Brothers have created a universe that is uniquely deep and rich, with virtually limitless creative possibilities, and the interactive space is the ideal world in which to explore them. With The Matrix: The Path of Neo, the Wachowski Brothers will be giving their legions of fans the best of everything: the first chance to personally relive Neo’s journey, and the chance to experience new adventures they cannot yet even imagine.”
“I’m very happy to continue my collaboration with Larry and Andy on all things Matrix and beyond,” said Joel Silver, producer of the Matrix film trilogy. “Enter The Matrix added another exciting chapter to the legend. I’m thrilled that we are further expanding and exploring the vast Matrix universe through The Matrix: The Path of Neo.”
