It looks like Cryptic Studios
is in stable financial hands according to a news blurb at Gamasutra
. Parent company Perfect World Entertainment
saw a rise in third quarter revenue compared to the same period last year.
reports that PWE's net profits declined during the same period, primarily due to the Cryptic acquisition and the decision to temper in-game monetization activities in certain titles.
"While focusing on further enhancing the content of our portfolio is necessary for our healthy long-term growth, this decision did slow our revenues for the third quarter on a sequential basis. But our third quarter results still represent solid year-over-year revenue growth of 22.4 percent," explained chairman and CEO Michael Chi.
