Rev your engines as Atari is thrilled to announce today that NeoSprint, the adrenaline-pumping multiplayer racing game, is gearing up for its launch on PC and consoles in the summer of 2024. Featuring a variety of game modes, customizable racetracks, upgradable cars, and eight-player local multiplayer, NeoSprint brings back the thrill of single-screen arcade racing.



With NeoSprint, Atari revisits the classic single-screen racing format that gained initial popularity in the 1970s with the Sprint arcade series. NeoSprint enhances the single-screen formula with modern features, including a rich, colorful 3D isometric presentation, upgradable vehicles, a track builder, and the opportunity to compete against top player times from around the globe.
