Champions Online: 2K is to Cryptic as Vivendi was to Blizzard (Sorta)

As an update to the 2K / Cryptic publishing deal: in the big press push ChampO released today it was revealed that 2K is dealing with marketing and distribution while Cryptic offers the rest of the full MMO service.

This makes me feel better - I had wondered how Cryptic was going to ship ChampO boxes worldwide if they self-published, so in this sense the 2K deal is a great idea. No mention if 2K is investing in ChampO or if Cryptic is just paying 2K to look after this for them, but it certainly doesn't look like Cryptic is handing control for ChampO out to a third party.
