Take-Two drops Champions Online

Makes way for new owners Atari.

Take-Two's president Ben Feder has told investors the the company will no longer publish Cryptic's superhero MMO, Champions Online.

Cryptic was acquired by Atari last week, raising the question of whether Take-Two's 2K Games label would be able to go ahead with the release of Champions.

Feder answered that question simply in a conference call yesterday."We no longer intend to publish the MMOG Champions Online due to Atari's acquisition of Cryptic," he said, as reported by GameSpot.

We can assume that Atari will be the one to put Champions on shelves, now. The game is still on course for a release in the second quarter of 2009 for PC and Xbox 360, according to Cryptic's Jack Emmert.
