UPDATE: Realtime Worlds has officially closed troubled MMO, APB. Here's the official message from the developer:
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. It's been a pleasure working on APB and with all its players. Together we were building an absolutely amazing game, and for that, we thank you. You guys are awesome!
From all of the Realtime World staff we thank you for your continued support.
The servers are still up, so join the party and say goodbye!
- Ben 'APBMonkey' Bateman (Community Officer)
ORIGINAL STORY: Realtime Worlds and its online game APB are reportedly set to shut tomorrow.
That's according to our colleagues at Edge, which cites multiple sources close to the collapsed Dundee studio.
Realtime went into administration in August before being split up last week when an anonymous American company bought its social game Project Myworld.
That left the company's Dundee studio, a US satellite office and the rights to APB up for grabs, and recent reports suggested an announcement concerning a buyout of the firm would be made this week.
If true, CVG sends its best wishes to all of Realtime's fallen employees.
