Cryptic is owned by Atari. Cryptic was bought by Atari before this game came out. Cryptic is part of Atari. It's just 2 companies in your list.
It's standard for MMO publishers to take 50-75% of the revenues of a game each month. The remainder is what's left for the producer to keep making the game. So while Atari might own Cryptic as the publisher they take their cut off the top, and then get a share of whatever profits Cryptic might make by the end of the year as well.
