APB could be rescued in 9 months
Codemasters Online boss David Solari is convinced that defunct Realtime Worlds MMO All Points Bulletin could be turned around in nine months.
Solari and Codies have had a look at the game and believe that it could be saved but they are not the ones who will be doing it.
Solari told Eurogamer: "[Realtime Worlds] made some key mistakes there. With some key stuff changed that game could be successful. Somebody will... If they don't pick up the game then they will pick up the technology for sure, because the avatar and character customisation technology is incredible. Something will definitely be done to preserve that."
He explained: "I do think the game could be turned around but it would need nine months of hard work. That game could have been successful but the cost of development and everything else was a huge thing. The money it had to make to support that was very high risk. If you could take a smaller team and make all the fixes and operate at a lower cost then it's fairly unique: there's not really anything else in the market out there."
It's not the right job for Codemasters Online as he added emphatically: "We have not picked up APB. I can answer you definitively we haven't picked that up."
