Atari buys MMO maker Cryptic Studios

Posted on Wednesday, December 10 2008 @ 22:07:22 CET by

Atari announced the acquisition of Cryptic Studios. This firm is known for City of Heroes and City of Villains, and they're working on three new games. Next year they'll launch Champions Online, a Star Trek MMO will follow in 2010 and a secret project will be released in 2010.
Additionally the deal will see some of the studio's technology make its way into other Atari titles, as well as powering the Atari.com portal.

"The acquisition of Cryptic Studios brings to Infogrames an outstanding creative organisation, with a proven track-record of success in the fast-growing MMO category," said David Gardner, CEO of Infogrames/Atari in a statement. "Cryptic's success is founded on leading-edge technology and the vision of a seasoned executive management team.

"I am impressed with the tools and technology that Cryptic has developed to make MMOs less expensive to build. Creating vast worlds and interesting interactions can be very people intensive but with the use of Cryptic's toolset they have a proven way of cutting average production costs in half. This is exactly the type of company we wanted to acquire in order to build Atari for the 21st century.
