    - Acclaim Entertainment Inc., which has made many pro wrestling games for the WWF, ECW and most recently the Legends of Wrestling franchise, is nearing bankruptcy. The company stated in a release that it may be forced to seek bankruptcy protection or shut down completely if they can't get a new bank to finance them. They posted a reported US$25.4 million loss in the last quarter.

    Of course, it's Acclaim who have distributed WCR, although it's Swordfish who developed it. I wonder if this is going to have a bearing on WCR2, or if Swordfish will have to find another distributor.

    They said WCR 2 is already in production so I don't know what they plan on doing... Maybe the deal has already be done and the game gets made even if Acclain goes down before it's release?

    What was more likely to come out first, Rugby 2005 or WCR2?
  5. Probably Rugby 2005.

    I can see that being out September ish.

    For it to come out in September, it would have needed to have been originally scheduled for last week.

    I think EA's rugby game is on a 2 year cycle so doubt if there'll be a 2005 version, it'll prob be 2006 version released Sept/Oct 2005.

    Yeah, that sounds about right. Maybe even a bit earlier as I think I saw some where Rugby was going to be on a 18 month cycle. It will be called 2006 anyway.

    gameplanet said rugby 2005 will be released in march 2005, which probly means september... the more work on it the better

    Thats a bit weird for it to be called Rugby 2005 then isn't it? Don't they always title the game with the following year of it's release?
