One of the bigger disappointments of this year has to be the cops and robbers themed MMO APB (All Points Bulletin). Launching with a huge marketing campaign, which included a reality show that saw an average Joe get turned into one of the game’s characters in real life, the game’s developer Real Time Worlds shuttered its doors and the game’s severs in the process mere weeks after APB launched.
It appears even the most hardened criminals deserve a second chance at life. Reload Productions, a subsidiary of Gamers First announced this morning that they have acquired the rights to relaunch APB as a free to play online game.
The company plans to relaunch the game sometime in the first half of 2011 as APB: Reloaded, complete with micro-transactions and prepaid cards.
