DUNDEE, Scotland – May 18, 2009 – Realtime Worlds, the leading independent video game developer, announced today that its ambitious growth plans have now taken it up to and beyond having 250 staff.

    But…but console developers are going bust, not expanding! BDH said so!

    *Yes, I know APB is PC only, at least to start with. But the other game they’re doing isn’t.

    Realtime Worlds sounds to me like a great place to be at the minute with what they’re working on. Certainly better than here :) I guess it would be just a bit of a wrench for a lot of people to up sticks to Dundee.
