Infogrames attempt to tot up their turnover
Young attractive French fox seeks forceful relationship with likeminded publisher
With Eidos seemingly out of the picture, French publisher Infogrames' eyes have fallen upon American wrestling and "Max Sports" giant Acclaim, who of course have development and publishing rights to WWF and other new-age titles, like the recently released Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX. The front page of this week's MCV headlines with "Now Bonnell eyes Acclaim", apparently because although the Eidos deal went South, the publisher is still seeking to increase its annual turnover to the $1 billion milestone. The company's last year has been very successful with losses down and profits up. The company's CEO Bruno Bonnell has made no comment regarding the alleged Acclaim talks, but it seems likely that more will turn up in the next week or two.
