Acclaim Games Shuts Down Most of Its Online Games After Playdom Transition

Posted Fri, Aug 27, 2010 by Martuk

Acclaim Games, who was purchased by Playdom back in May, who then in turn was acquired by Disney, recently shut down service for its MMORPG The Chronicles of Spellborn. But it seems The Chronicles of Spellborn wasn't the only game hit as it seems most of the online games in the Acclaim Games lineup have either shut down or changed hands. A visit to the Acclaim Games website reveals this fact, with Acclaim also offering some compensation to 9Dragons players for unused Acclaim Coins purchased within the last 30 days. 9Dragons, as we reported earlier this week, has been picked up by GamersFirst and will continue its operation with the free-to-play publisher.

Acclaim Games also operated the games 2Moons, which players can currently migrate their Acclaim accounts to a GamHi account, Bots, Dance Online, and others.
