APB will carry on as normal in Europe and the US, despite developer Realtime Worlds’ financial collapse. Administrators behind the scenes have kept a skeleton crew behind to focus on the game’s future. There will be future updates and game improvements, with a new patch on the public test server right now.
The new patch adds fairer matchmaking, balances vehicle handling and combat, adds some new graphics options, changes HUD messaging, improves voice communications and adds new decorative aspects like clothing, symbols, vehicles and instruments.
Only 53 members of staff remain at Realtime Worlds’ Dundee HQ, down from 210. The Colorado office has had to get rid of 28 members of staff, leaving them with 14.
