Some players able to get refunds for APB
Realtime World's recently released online shooter shocked many when it was shut down after mere months of operation.
Some players, though, are reporting they are able to get compensation for the short-lived MMOG. APB buyers posting on the Steam forums say publisher Electronic Arts has offered them free games or full refunds as a gesture of goodwill.
However, Realtime Worlds administrator Paul Dounis told Gamasutra that consumers mileage may vary, and compensation is largely up to the the retailer from which players purchased the title.
Realtime Worlds' $100-million project was shipped in July after a long series of delays. The sudden collapse of the shooter resulted in the closure of the Scottish developer, with more than 300 employees put out of work.
