Cryptic Studios Developing a New Superhero MMO, Champions Online
Cryptic Studios, developer of the acclaimed MMO City of Heroes and the recently canceled Marvel Universe MMO, have announced that they’re hard at work on a new online game. Surprise, surprise it’s an MMO based around superheroes, this time titled “Champions Online.” Little is known about the game at this point other than you’ll be able to play as either a hero or a villain, and it’s being developed for consoles as well as PCs. Considering the handful of similarities between this new title and the ill-fated Marvel MMO, it sounds like the studio is trying to salvage some of their old project for this new one. We’ll have to see if this new game can compete with their old project, City of Heroes, which is now under the watchful eye of NCSoft.
