In a move that no adoption agency would ever endorse, Playdom has basically killed off Acclaim just a few months after acquiring it, as Gamasutra
reports. Acclaim's site
says that all of its online games have been shut down as of August 26 and unused "Acclaim Coins" are being refunded. A couple of games, Kogamu
, will continue to live on under the Playdom banner.
Playdom was bought a month ago by Disney which apparently had little interest in continuing to support Acclaim titles like 9Dragons
. Though we can't claim to be big fans of any of their MMOs -- and can't really say we know anyone who fits that description -- it does seem kind of a jarring way to leave consumers.
