A social gaming company has shut down what was left of the legendary video game publisher Acclaim just a few months after purchasing it.
Playdom, itself recently acquired by Disney, has ended all support for any remaining Acclaim-branded titles. Reimbursements are being offered to former customers who purchased “Acclaim Coins” for the martial arts MMORPG 9Dragons.
This is really the second death for Acclaim, which created such hits as Mortal Kombat, NBA Jam and Turok: Dinosaur Hunter before going bankrupt in 2004 and re-emerging as basically a new company that was a shadow of its former self.
SPECIAL THANKS ARE IN ORDER:
