The GSD Holding Group announced in 2020 that they’d create resorts themed around gaming properties from Atari. Their announcement quickly garnered online traction & became a viral sensation, prompting investor interest. This holding corporation has now shown concept art regarding their upcoming Atari-themed hotels, which saw notable inclusions of other characters from additional properties like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Concept art provides an inside look into what GSD Holdings plans for their Atari resorts, with a particular emphasis on cyberpunk designs. This follows the overall aesthetic associated with the Atari brand. GSD Holdings clarified that concept art was exclusively for their Las Vegas-established hotel, which is slated to arrive in 2022. The Vegas Atari hotel is being themed around the Galactica Mothership, which’ll surely draw older fans of video games to the hotel property.
