Cryptic Bought By Infogrames

Champions Online and Star Trek Online now fully owned by Infogrames (who also own the zombie Atari label).

Cryptic’s titles were going to be published by 2K Games; Ten Ton Hammer got a hold of 2K and got a “Uh… they did what? Uh, we’ll get back to you guys.” comment.

Not too many independent MMO producers left; Cryptic was one of the bigger ones.
