Now that we've seen that Acclaim is shark bait at this point,  what is this going to mean for the games and franchises that they were going to release this year?  Combat Paratroopers was one, but it was bogged down due to litigation with BattleBorne Entertainment.  Were there other titles people were looking forward to, and have we heard what might come of them?

I'm thinking the independent development houses will hit the big red Pause button and have to look for a new publisher.  I don't think they are part of the shipwreck though.

My heart goes out to the 600 people who lost their jobs though...that really bites.

It's also a shame that Juiced and Res Star are basically on hold or vaporware now..even though they were just weeks from release.  Who knows, they may work out a deal to get those out for potential revenue.
