Atari's latest financial results reveal that the publisher expects to release the Xbox 360 version of Cryptic's superhero MMO Champions Online this year, and follow it up with Star Trek Online before the end of March 2010.

The PC version of Champions Online recently had its release delayed from June to September 1st in North America and 4th in Europe.

Atari's earnings statement says the game will be released on "PC in September 2009, X-Box in Q3" of its 2009/2010 fiscal year. Atari's financial year runs from April to March, which would put release of the 360 version sometime between October and December of this year.

On Star Trek Online, also being developed by Cryptic, the statement says: "This game is expected to benefit from the success of the newest Star Trek film (release for the videogame is expected by the end of this fiscal year)." So that would be before the end of March 2010.

Cryptic's developers are clearly busy bees. "Cryptic Studios is working on the development of a series of new games based on Atari’s existing and historically successful IPs," adds the statement.
