In 2006, another company acquired Acclaim's name and logo and called itself "Acclaim Games," acting as a publisher of {{MMORPG}}s such as ''BOTS'', ''[=9Dragons=]'' and ''The Chronicles of Spellborn''.

The company made several questionable marketing decisions during its waning years (such as spending [[Creator/ValiantComics $65 million on a comic book company]], [[DueToTheDead being willing to foot the bill for a funeral as long as advertising is on the headstone]] and the infamous decision to [[HotterAndSexier include nudity]] in what became ''BMX XXX''; this, coupled with continuing to use his name even after he asked not to be associated with the game, angered Dave Mirra enough that he sued Acclaim for damages). The company eventually filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in September 2004, effectively shutting it down for good. Ironically, when Acclaim went under it had finished making an exceptionally good licensed game based on ''VideoGame/TheRedStar'', which was eventually picked up for publication by XS Games[[labelnote:note]]a division of Zenimax Media, parent company of Creator/BethesdaSoftworks[[/labelnote]] and released in 2007.
