Time Warner Interactive (Group) (TWI) was a studio within Time Warner which developed video games. It was formed in 1993 after Time Warner bought a controlling interest in Atari Games, and was active until 1996 when WMS Industries bought the company. This studio was previously known as Tengen, the consumer division of Atari Games. Atari Games would continue to operate under their own name until 1996 when both it and Time Warner Interactive were brought back together and renamed Midway Games West. Time Warner Interactive was responsible for games such as Rise of the Robots, Primal Rage and T-MEK.
Time Warner also bought the UK publisher Renegade Software in 1995 and kept it independent as Warner Interactive Entertainment. Both subsidiaries were short-lived: Time Warner Interactive was formed from the Atari Games acquisition in 1993 and sold to WMS Industries on March 29, 1996, while Warner Interactive Entertainment existed only two years before being sold to GT Interactive in 1997.
There is no relation between Atari Games/Time Warner Interactive and Atari Corporation.
