Lights out for APB

Realtime Worlds may follow

It seems that time has been called on Realtime Worlds' ill-fated MMO APB.

Today the studio announced that they would be shutting down APB's servers after a long hard fight to keep the game going.

A Realtime Worlds representative said: "APB has been a fantastic journey, but unfortunately that journey has come to a premature end. Today we are sad to announce that despite everyone's best efforts to keep the service running; APB is coming to a close."

The studio was reportedly close to finding a buyer but the sale fell through at the last minute which means the studio may be closing its doors for good soon. A spokesman for Begbies Traynor the studio's administrator added: "We are embarking on a marketing process to sell the APB game platform and intellectual property rights."
