APB: All Points Bulletin goes titsup

Massively Multi-non-player

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

APB: All Points Bulletin, the new massively multiplayer game, is shutting down and is holding a Wake.

In a statement on the site today, the company said: "The servers are still up, so join the party and say goodbye!

APB's demise is not a surprise: its developer Dundee-based Real Time Worlds went bust last month and 250 jobs went down the pan. So it was in no position to support its baby, released in June to mixed reviews.

Administrators could not find a buyer for APB, but the game may yet live again. according to a BBC source, the US developer Epic Games is in the frame to buy the intellectual property rights for APB.

Administrators sold RTW's other new game Project: My World, a social game, last month, saving 30 jobs.
