Renegade to be new home of Sid Sackson’s classic Acquire
San Diego, CA – Feb 2nd, 2023 - Renegade Game Studios and Hasbro, a global branded entertainment leader, expand their partnership to make Renegade the new home for Acquire, Sid Sackson’s classic game of big-city real estate. A partnership was first announced in October 2022, with the announcement that Renegade would be taking over Axis & Allies, Diplomacy, Robo Rally, and Squad Leader. Renegade will be releasing a new version of Acquire in 2023.
“Acquire is a timeless classic that we’re excited to add to our line-up. The team has been working hard to make sure the latest version thrills old and new players alike. We can’t wait for stores to have this category staple back on shelves this year.” said Scott Gaeta, President of Renegade Game Studios.
First released in 1963, Acquire puts gamers in the shoes of a real estate mogul, vying for control of companies as they expand, merge, and gain value. Renegade’s latest version will incorporate community feedback and feature much-desired features like a return to the 9x12 gridded plastic board, plastic tiles and buildings, and classic theming of the hotel chains, including one named for the late great designer Sid Sackson. The rulebook will also be updated to include clarifications and adjustments gathered from previous versions of the game.
Gamers can expect the new updated version of this classic game in 2023 with distribution in friendly local game stores as well as specialty retailers worldwide. Localized editions are in the works and will be announced at a later time.
Renegade will also be supporting the game with a Gen Con Championship held in Indianapolis this August.
