RTW’s Jones: “We’re very, very happy” with APB
Realtime Worlds’ Dave Jones is a happy man. MMO APB, five years in the making, is finally coming to market, and he’s confident it’s going to be a winner.
“We’re very, very happy with it,” Jones told GI ahead of his GamesHorizon keynote.
“We’re looking at a launch date of early 2010 – we’ve got the partnership with EA Partners cemented, because we knew we’d need to start building presence at retail, marketing-wise. And we’ve signed a deal with a company on the hosting side – so everything’s going really well.”
Jones said the firm’s confident of a hit.
“We’re playing the game every day now, hosted internally – obviously it’s a company first, we’ve never done anything like this before, but overall I think everybody’s pretty confident that we’ll have a successful launch,” he said.
