Can't sleep, what dose any tech-savvy individual due? (s)he fires up GoogleEarth and looks around. I'm currently looking at the 980 University Avenue Los Gatos, CA 95032 address and the lovely Cryptic Studio maker out front but I also see the Atari one just a few yards away...

So I've got to ask. are the Cryptic Studios still located here, if so any plans on moving to new offices... one would think that post Atari De-investment of Cryptic, you'd want to put some distance between you and them beyond parking in lot a or lot b. if not for anything more peace of mind if not for company security...

Gonna pay for it?

Seriously. Costs a lot of money to move an entire development team and/or company like that. I like to give them a benefit of the doubt but considering the last quarterly conference call of PWs, I think they're going to hold off on any unneeded expenses that they can.

Gotta protect their 85% net profit

Well I don't know Atari or Cryptic personally, but neither seem like the crazy ex type. I'm certain they'll go on their seperate ways quite happily even at that proximity.

You make it sound like there was some kind of war going on between them. it was business, then they went their separate ways. i dont think they are both living in the offices behind boarded up windows spying on each other.

Google Images aren't always up to date. It depends on the region ofc, but they have only recently displayed the construction of my 5 year old neighborhood.

Still, if its true... damn.. thats got to be kind of awkward for Cryptic and Atari.

That picture is from May 2011, they hadn't removed the Atari sign from in front of Cryptic yet.
