Cryptic Studios to announce new MMO

July reveal expected to be Star Trek Online.  

A countdown timer has appeared on the official Cryptic Studios website in the 'games' section, pointing to a new game announcement from the MMO specialists on the 27th July.

Cryptic was the original developer of superhero MMO City of Heroes, and is now working on the rival Champions Online. It is heavily rumoured to be the "Bay Area developer" that picked up the Star Trek Online project from Perpetual Entertainment when that studio went into liquidation early this year.

The countdown timer features a space graphic that clearly suggests a science fiction project, and some commentators claim to recognise it as early concept art produced by Perpetual for Star Trek Online.

July 27th is the final day of the San Diego Comic-Con, a very likely venue for the official unveiling of such a high-profile cult licence. Be sure to check back then for the official word.
