Dave Jones not joining Epic, US dev may still pick up APB IP though
Former boss of Realtime Worlds Dave Jones has spoken up to quash rumours that he will be joining Unreal Engine developer Epic Games.
Jones, who had a hand in creating the GTA and Crackdown franchises before the untimely demise of his latest venture APB, told Develop Online that he has no plans to leave Dundee for the sunnier climes of Epic's North Carolina home.
Epic may not have secured Dave Jones' services but the big time independent developer could still be in the running for picking up the APB as an intellectual property.
Realtime Worlds' administrator Begbies Traynor stated: "It is understood that there are a number of companies interested in buying the game. Some are said to want to put it back into development for a few months, while others are said to be interested in the customer-relationship software. Begbies is currently carrying out due diligence on various offers and is planning to reach a decision in the coming weeks."
