GameFly sells off digital distribution business

GameFly has sold its online games distribution service to AtGames Holding Ltd, the company revealed in a brief announcement at its digital storefront.

The service will remain active during its transition between owners, and users will still be able to access and play their purchased games after transferring their account information to AtGames. AtGames notes that it will "build upon an extensive product line-up" with continued releases.

GameFly established its digital distribution catalog with the purchase of IGN's Steam precursor Direct2Drive in 2011. AtGames, founded in 2001, manufactures a number of retro-focused replica consoles and handhelds, including the Atari Flashback and the Sega Genesis Classic Console.
