Champions Online Hitting PC First, Console Later

City of Heroes co-developer Cryptic Studios has confirmed that its next super-powered MMO will launch on PC before the promised Xbox 360 and possible PS3 edition hit. nope

"All I know is it's coming out first on the PC," design director and Flagship Studios veteran Bill Roper told Eurogamer. "We really, really want to bring it out on console, the consoles are just hungry and perfect for an MMO, and we've done a lot of work to ensure that there's nothing to prevent us from doing that...It's an area beyond my control."

While once slated for June, Champions Online is now set to launch within the vague spring timeframe. Officially, the game has only been announced for PC and Xbox 360, though publisher Atari lists the MMO as coming to "consoles."
