"Unlike the government, we don't keep secrets of our capabilities. We don't sell policy, we sell power."
Jonathan Irons in Atlas

The Atlas Corporation is a private military corporation (PMC) featured in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. It was founded and led by CEO Jonathan Irons and is the largest, if not the most powerful private company in the world. Between the missions "Atlas" and the beginning of "Utopia", they are the main protagonists, but from the rest of "Utopia" and the end of the game, they are the main antagonists.


Founded in February of 2035 in Colorado Springs[1] by Jonathan Irons, Atlas Corporation began its investments by purchasing the largest bioengineering research and development firm in the world. By 2047, Atlas had made large strides in developing and patenting advanced soldier exoskeleton technology, successfully field testing 3D printed weaponry and munitions, opening a European HQ in Belgium and Switzerland, signing the largest US military weapons supply contract in history and patenting hover technology for vehicles and exoskeletons.

Atlas Corporation became well known as the first to act after devastating and catastrophic events and set things right. Atlas entered Baghdad after the second Gulf War and did more in five years to repair the city than what the U.S. government could do in 50 years.

May of 2050 marked the beginning of Atlas Corporation as the largest private military company on the planet.

With freedom to act without governmental or congressional approval, the corporation quickly built itself up using its immense funds and fast results. It became the first such corporation to be admitted into the United Nations Security Council.
