Acclaim name to be sold?

July 21st by Neil Long

Bankrupt publisher Acclaim may return from the dead following a reported $100,000 bid for the rights to the name from Central Investment Holdings.

According to a report on, the name is not the only Acclaim property up for grabs. Crave Entertainment is also interested in the Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX series and ATV Quad Power Racing 2 for a combined total of $120,000.

Each deal is subject to a higher bidder in the next few weeks, with CIH and Crave reportedly refusing to indicate what each company will do with the respective properties.

The sales would continue the stripping of assets of the failed publisher, following the sale of Juiced to THQ, the company headquarters, four unfinished projects and the rights to the company’s comic book characters.
