Couple weeks back, we heard that MMO specialists Cryptic Studios were working on a number of games based on old Atari IP. We thought old meant old, but it may just meant Neverwinter Nights.
The Cut Scene are reporting that Cryptic are already at work on a Neverwinter Nights MMO, with the game due for release in 2011. Makes sense! Atari still hold the rights to NWN, it's already an RPG, and the series has a loyal, persistent following.
It's also claimed that this was indeed the main reason Atari bought Cryptic in the first place. Which, again, makes sense: after all, it's now official Atari policy to pursue an online business model.
