Acclaim Acquired by Playdom

The popular social games developer Playdom has acquired Acclaim, the once legendary developer that nowadays has focused on being a publisher for free to play MMORPG’s such as 9Dragons, 2Moons, The Chronicles of Spellborn and more. But those games are not the reason Playdom was interested in Acclaim, it was some of the later browser based titles such as RockFree that sparked their interest. Apparently Playdom is still focused on social, browser based MMO’s and Acclaim’s recent move into the market has made it a great investment. Let’s hope they’ll keep publishing desktop MMORPG’s, too.
