Looking Back at Closed Game Publishers From the 1990s

Video game publishers come and go. Sometimes if gamers are lucky, the closing studios' franchises are acquired by other companies. Studios like Black Isle, 3D Realms, Sierra, Acclaim, Midway and several others delivered great games like Baldur's Gate, Planescape Torment, Duke Nukem, King's Quest, San Francisco Rush, the original Mortal Kombat and many other great games all had their heyday in the 1990s. (Acclaim Games, Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate 2, Black Isle Studios, Industry, King's Quest, Midway, PC, Planescape: Torment, Retro)

Does anyone know if Dark Alliance continues in any way? My only beef with that series was the terrible end of game cliffhangers. 1 and 2 made me want more.
