Acclaim makes big steps in publishing
After publishing numerous titles already, and having many games preparing for release, Acclaim has become one of the biggest publisher for the PS2. With RC Revenge Pro, Bust-A-Move, Crazy Taxi, QB Club 2002, All-Star Baseball, Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2, Fur Fighters: Viggo's Revenge, and XG3 Extreme-G3 seeing console presence, and 18 Wheeler, Burnout, Jeremy McGrath Supercross World, Legends of Wrestling, and Paris-Dakar Rally to Sony's PlayStation 2, plus six more for other systems about to be released this fall and winter, Acclaim has made huge steps with their presence in the gaming industry.
"The holiday portfolio defines our Company's commitment to the next-generation systems, as our product mix is focused on the new hardware platforms, which allowed our development studios to maximize the capabilities of their proprietary tools and engines," said Gregory Fischbach, chief executive officer, Acclaim. "Based upon our current evaluation of the market conditions at retail, we are cautiously optimistic and anticipate that our performance will meet with analysts' expectations for the current quarter. We are comfortable with analysts' hardware and software estimates for the current calendar year and are confident that both Microsoft and Nintendo will have successful launches with their respective new systems. In addition, we are eagerly looking forward to releasing several launch titles to enhance the breadth and depth of the next-generation entertainment experience."
"Furthermore, we will continue to support all of our holiday releases, which should appeal to a broad spectrum of consumers, with integrated marketing campaigns, including national print and television advertising," added Fischbach.
