According to the press release announcing the acquisition, GamersFirst revealed it plans to re-launch the franchise in "the first half of 2011" as APB: Reloaded--a free-to-play, Unreal Engine 3-powered title, developed by Reloaded Productions Inc.
Less than three months after launching, developer Realtime Worlds closed down the servers for the online title. Today's announcement makes no mention of the rumored £1.5 million ($2.4M) price-tag that had been attached to the sale.
I'll F2P it.
I was interested, but never enough for a monthly.
