Acclaim and Mirra together again

Acclaim Entertainment announces that it has amicably resolved its differences with BMX star Dave Mirra.



Acclaim Entertainment announced that it has resolved its differences with BMX star Dave Mirra following a contract dispute earlier this year. Mirra filed a $21 million lawsuit against the publisher in February when he retracted his support for the adult-humored BMX XXX.

"We are pleased to have amicably resolved this matter with Dave and anxiously look forward to resuming our successful working partnership," said Rod Cousens, CEO for Acclaim Entertainment. "The Dave Mirra brand is the number one BMX brand in the video game industry, and we will continue to work with Dave to build upon our proven formula for success."

"I'm glad that this issue is behind us," added Dave Mirra. "I look forward to working with Acclaim and to continue making the best BMX video games available for fans of the sport."

Acclaim stated today that Mirra's lawsuit has been settled with no monetary or other damages being paid by either side, and it went on to confirm that the BMX star is still under contract with Acclaim until the year 2011. Acclaim is currently working on a next-generation Dave Mirra BMX game and is expected to announce details in the not-too-distant future.
