Seems like only yesterday that All Points Bulletin hit the mean, crime infested streets. Oh yeah, that’s because it basically was. The cops ‘n’ robbers MMO launched on June 29 of this year, and, well, it had some issues. Not nearly as many issues, however, as its developer Realtime Worlds, who recently put an entire development team on the chopping block and declared bankruptcy.
And now, after failing to attract a buyer, it looks as though All Points Bulletin’s gone straight from the cradle into the grave.
â€œAPB has been a fantastic journey, but unfortunately that journey has come to a premature end. Today we are sad to announce that despite everyoneâ€™s best efforts to keep the service running; APB is coming to a close. Itâ€™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!â€ wrote Realtime Worlds community manager Ben Bateman.
