What's Next for Acclaim?

With their broadening stable of diverse massively multiplayer games, Acclaim has made a fairly large impact in the free to play marketplace in the last few months. At the 2008 GDC, Garrett Fuller had the opportunity to sit down with Dave Perry and Howard Marks to get the full scope of Acclaim and where the company is going in the next few months. Everything from Top Secret to 2Moons is touched upon, so make sure you check it out!

While not everyone may agree with the free-to-play model, Acclaim is embracing the model to offer the best options for players. Acclaim is making the micro-transaction payments available through cell phones and cash cards. The cards are available at retail outlets like Target and give players access to Acclaim coins if needed. However if you do not want to spend any money and simple play these games for free you can download them and play through as much as you like. Acclaim continues to try and work on making ways for players to have easy access for micro-transactions.
