Realtime Worlds closes down
Following the news yesterday that APB was being shut down, the title's embattled developer announced that it too would close after failing to secure a buyer.
The remaining 50 staff retained to keep the lights of for APB were let go today with seven temporary staff remaining to wind the company down.
Realtime Worlds boss Dave Jones told the official forums: "I truly wish we had the chance to continue to craft APB into the vision we had for it. It has been a long & difficult journey but ultimately rewarding to have had the chance to try something bold and different. I am so sorry it had to end so quickly but hopefully the good memories will stay with us all for a long time."
Epic Games are rumoured to be interested in picking up APB as an intellectual property although Epic's Dana Cowley refused to confirm the rumour saying: "Mark [Epic Games CEO] absolutely loves APB, and everyone here loved what they saw. We've got our hands full of Gears of War 3, BulletStorm and the recently announced Project Sword. If any talks like that are going on, then they would be confidential."
