Tenfold Hate


Atari and Cryptic: Two Great Tastes That Taste Great Together?

Just got the news over at Massively. Despite any prior indication that this was coming around the bend, it appears Atari has acquired Cryptic Studios. With the resources required in this day and age to put out a “Triple A” MMORPG, I don’t see anything wrong with smaller studios getting an economic piggy-back from larger companies. Anything in the current economic landscape that gives MMORPG studios a bit more survivability (as long as it’s not accompanied by total creativite compromise) is probably a good thing.

Wasn’t Atari falling under however? Not sure this is a good thing for Cryptic Studios, but hopefully it will work out.

@Danshir: That’s more rumour than truth, but certainly Atari aren’t in the position they once were. Looks like Big Phil is up to his tricks with this one, and like you I think it’s a sensible move on everyone’s part.

We can only hope, Cryptic studios is a decent developer, would hate to see them go under.
