    No, don't worry, you didn't offend me! It's just that Ian and Trev at Swordfish had a great relationship with Acclaim, and a lot of the people there were good people who they liked very much!

    I just didn't want them to be offended, that's all!
  9. No offence taken.

    It's been a very sad time to see some close friends to the studio have to undergo Acclaim's fate.

    As you can imagine there is a lot going on behind the scenes at the moment, and as soon as Trev and I have anything concrete to report we'll try and make an announcement.

    Me hugs all you guys at Acclaim [​IMG]

    I'm sure you'll find a great new Publisher!! [​IMG]
  11. Some bad news and some good news.

    The bad news is that as you all know Acclaim have gone bust. We're searching for a new publishing partner and have lots of interest, but nothing is certain until the ink is on the contract.

    We'll let you know when we find a new partner. Whether we are able to continue posting game info on here will depend on who that partner is ... some publishers control PR and info release very tightly.

    The good news? ... not sure whether this is interesting but it was announced last week that we are developing a new generation Brian Lara title for Codemasters. We've been working on it for a while but it was only announced on Friday. We cannot give any details just yet, but it's pretty cool as we are big cricket fans too.

    I'm sure Ian will keep you guys updated.

    I won't be suprised if Codemasters will take you on to develop WCR2

    I can honestly say that you will have no problem getting a new publisher [​IMG]
