When the Ten Ton Hammer staff href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/50919" target="_blank">heard
about Atari's purchase of Cryptic Studios,
we immediately got on the phone with Jack Emmert, Cryptic
chief creative officer, to learn about all the details and how the deal
was going to affect href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/taxonomy/term/117"

and target="_blank">Champions Online.
What we got was an extensive interview about how the deal with Atari
came to pass, how the acquisition will affect the studio, and what we
can expect from the future of Atari and Cryptic Studios. With solid IPs
like D&D’s Forgotten Realms, Godzilla, Dragon Ball Z
and Alone in
the Dark to draw from, there’s definitely plenty to be
excited about in
the Atari / Cryptic acquisition and this interview definitely exudes
Jack Emmert's enthusiasm on the entire situation. Check it out!

can also tell you that we’re doing things a little bit
differently in
Champions than what we did in CoH and CoV. One thing that we did, that
I think is pretty cool, is that essentially the game is going to be
done by the end of the year. Then what we’re going to do from
to the first quarter of next year is put in features, polish and
suggestions that players have made in the beta. We’re
focusing on trying to improve the game as much as we can based on the
feedback of the actual players.
