Realtime rumoured to want to sell APB

UPDATE: Community man responds.

UPDATE: A community officer called APBMonkey has posted on the European APB forum in response to the current rumour surrounding Realtime Worlds.

"As we've announced we had to restructure the company to make it so that we can focus totally on APB.

"APB is still going strong and we fully intend to support 100 per cent. In fact we have a cool announcement coming this afternoon, so keep your eyes peeled."

ORIGINAL STORY: Speculation is mounting that Scottish developer Realtime Worlds wants to sell on its MMO APB.

According to an unconfirmed report on VG247, Realtime made the entire team behind its recently announced social game Project: MyWorld redundant today.

As many as 60 are said to have been laid off.

Eurogamer has contacted Realtime Worlds for clarification.

In July Realtime announced it would restructure following the release of MMO APB.

Realtime said staff headcount would increase on APB in order to provide "total support", fresh content and aggressive marketing.

Indeed new "post-launch" positions on APB were advertised for.

Last month creative director Dave Jones defended APB following disappointing review scores, blaming them on "misconceptions" and "huge expectations".

Eurogamer gave APB a 6/10 review.
