Cryptic Studios, the developer of the upcoming multiplayer game Star Trek Online, is being acquired by Infogrames Entertainment, the French parent company of Atari.

Cryptic is developing three different MMO franchises, planned for release over the next three years on PC and next-generation consoles, including Champions Online to be released in 2009 and Star Trek Online to be released in 2010. The company says a third game currently in development will be announced in the near future.

Atari’s goal is to become a leading online game developer and publisher. If what we’ve seen of Star Trek Online is any indication, this will be a huge step in that direction.
