    RIP All Points Bulletin (APB)

    Video from the Game:



    For people who don't wanna read this below and spam TL;DR read this:

    In mid-August announced the development studio Real Time Worlds insolvency, and had to throw out most of the staff.

    For 1 Reason they didn't get that much cash like they though and got some really bad ratings on game sites.

    There is hope because Epic-Games maybe buy APB.
    __________________________________________________ _____________

    September 19 2010

    Just three months after its rocky launch, Realtime Worlds' PC online crimeworld game All Points Bulletin will close, amid the heavy blows of its developer's ongoing administration.

    "APB has been a fantastic journey, but unfortunately that journey has come to a premature end," wrote community officer Ben Bateman on the game's official message boards. "Today we are sad to announce that despite everyone's best efforts to keep the service running, APB is coming to a close."

    Original Crackdown house Realtime Worlds ramped up massively in the development of APB. In May 2009, the Scottish developer said its headcount hit 250, and offices covered 34,000 square feet of space total, and in August 2009 it opened a new office in Dundee, shooting to grow to 300 employees by year end.

    But APB received an immediately poor critical reception, scoring just a 53 average on Metacritic alongside critical complaints that it was buggy, felt unfinished and was not compelling.

    Shortly thereafter came difficulties for the developer, which laid off staff just a month after launch, citing the need to shift resources to live support for the title. Another set of layoffs shortly followed, leading up to the news that the studio had to enter administration.

    Administrator Begbies Traynor said it hoped to find a buyer for APB and keep it live, claiming the game had 130,000 users and "healthy" player spend -- but that's clearly not to be. Realtime Worlds' second project, a social virtual environment in progress called My World, has reportedly been picked up by an anonymous U.S. buyer, but it remains unknown whether that buyer has purchased the entire project with plans of continuance, or merely the IP and build.

    Realtime Worlds says that its servers are still running for the time being, encouraging players to "say goodbye."

    Cool
    i played this game for a good while. it is a fun game, though i can see where the bad ratings came in. the gun powers and stuff was really fucked up. the driving wasn't very quick (lot of lag), and the missions were all the same. anyways the servers are down now permentally. i tried going on wouldn't let me past the log in screen and the site is down. it was a fairly good game though

    I think it took 8 years and over 100 million dollars.

    Basically a huge bomb.

    Meh, I barely ever came up with a bug in APB, no idea how those critics could have found more bugs than a closed beta tester that had played APB since summer and played in almost every playtest. -.-
