While its Marvel MMO has been canned, City of Heroes developer Cryptic obviously isn’t taking the matter to heart. The next issue of Game Informer has first details of the company’s new super-hero MMO, Champions Online.

“We have the first look at Cryptic Studios’ latest superhero MMO, Champions Online,” it says here. “The City of Heroes developers are taking on PCs and consoles, too, letting us all unleash our inner heroes — or villains.”

The Marvel MMO was being planned for Xbox 360, so it’s not a giant surprise Cryptic would still want to get into the console space with a hero game. Expect more on this from GDC next week, where Cryptic is going proper tonto with the amount of sessions it’s serving.
