APB launch: “We’re not that far away”

By Patrick Garratt, Tuesday, 29 July 2008 17:55 GMT


Speaking to VG247 at Develop in Brighton today, Realtime Worlds studio manager Colin Macdonald has given a clear indication that the launch of hugely anticipated crime MMO APB is closer than many thought.

“We’re not that far away,” he said. “Things have been going really, really well. But it’s a mammoth game: what’s still to be done isn’t going to be done overnight. It’s still going to take a little while, but we’re not talking about that far away now.”

The game knocked the crowd dead at GDC this year, and is coming from David Jones, one of the original GTA team.

Macdonald also told us that news on the beta will be released soon.
