Updated Fri, Aug 27, 2010 by Martuk

Acclaim Games, owner of such free-to-play MMOGs as The Chronicles of Spellborn, 9Dragons, 2 Moons and several others, has been acquired by social game developer, Playdom. Playdom is known for such Facebook social games as Mobsters, Wild Ones, and Social City just to name a few. The company picked up over $43 million in funding last year and hasn't been shy about investing their funding as they have invested in or acquired at least six different studios. Acclaim launched RockFree, a Facebook game back in March. It has since garnered the attention of more millions players. Playdom will use Acclaim to help strengthen its upcoming pipeline of games.

Acclaim will become the newest team to join Playdom's growing cadre of studios. Marks, a former Activision 2.0 co-founder and Chairman of the Activision Studios, will run the Acclaim studio for Playdom and serve in a senior strategic role for the parent company focused on Playdom's business development activities. Acclaim's Chief Technology Officer, Neil Malhotra, a longtime Marks colleague, will now act as the studio's senior technical officer.
