The Acclaim Website
has news that Acclaim games are no longer in service as of yesterday, just three months after the MMOG publisher was acquired by Playdom
(thanks MxxCon). This news is also reflected on individual game websites, such as the home of Chronicles of Spellborn
, though plans to shut that down around now were already revealed
. This is the second time Acclaim has closed, as the company went bankrupt six years ago
(almost to the exact day), before the name was purchased for a revival in 2006
to publish Asian multiplayer games in the west. Here's the news from the Acclaim website:
We regret to inform you that all Acclaim games will no longer be in service effective August 26, 2010
