BUT ... I believe the fact that the company's been sold during that time is also another big indicator. Two companies now mismanaging Cryptic Studios and their games (NCSoft and Atari) since the company began with a third now taking its chance to roll the dice.
The company has been able to churn out three MMORPGs at varying level of success, and are working on a fourth, but the company doesn't seem to have been able to get a hit to stick before losing money to the point that they get sold off to someone else.
