Default Cryptic Studios sold for $50m

http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/a...0-million.aspx

Former Atari studio and Star Trek Online and Champions Online developer Cryptic has been bought by Chinese publisher/developer Perfect World.

Perfect World, which runs titles like its own Legend of Martial Arts MMO in Asia and in other parts of the world bought Cryptic for $50 million.

It's unknown what Perfect World's plans are for Cryptic, but when Atari put the studio on the auction block recently, Cryptic said that it was still supporting Star Trek Online and Champions Online, as well as working on a new Neverwinter title.

I heard about this, but didn't know they got it that cheap. That's kind of sad...

I've had recurring nightmares
That I was loved for who I am
And missed the opportunity
To become a better man

Interesting to see the new Neverwinter. I've not played, but have heard good things.

To be honest, that's probably about 45 million more than Atari were expecting, seeing as Cryptic have STO on their record.
