Industry rallies around collapsing Realtime Worlds
Some of the biggest names in the games industry have been lending their support to the 157 staff let go from the stricken APB developer Realtime Worlds.
Activision, Blizzard, Blitz Games and Creative Assembly are mobilising to offer those who have been let go the opportunity to find new jobs by hosting recruitment events in Dundee over the next week.
Realtime Worlds is currently in administration and is said to be courting interest from buyers in both the UK and the US.
The company confirmed that they had been forced to make 157 members of staff redundant and currently owe creditors somewhere in the region of 3 million GBP.
