Atari has announced the sale of Cryptic Studios, the maker of online games such as Star Trek Online, City of Heroes and Champions Online to China’s Perfect World. Perfect World is paying 35 million euros, or $49.8 million in cash to fully acquire Cryptic Studios. Beijing-based Perfect World operates a number of its own self-developed MMO titles, with the company recently preparing to publish its first external MMO later this year in the form of Korean action game Rusty Hearts

I doubt Atari gave up the rights to the games they worked on considering the low amount paid.

Because Atari owns the finished products, they can have any crew patch and update the games. The Developers are now Chinese owned.

Well I hope we wont see any of Cryptics games anymore. They are absolutely utter bull****, the worst MMOs I have ever played. I'm not ever gonna buy a game from them, nor perfect world.
