The official APB press release issued by EA yesterday seems to stipulate that Realtime Worlds MMO will be PC only.

“Electronic Arts Inc. and Realtime Worlds, Inc. announced today that they have entered an exclusive marketing and distribution agreement for North America and Europe that will bring the highly-anticipated All Points Bulletin (APB) to PC in early 2010,” says the release.”

Rumour broke last month the APB was to be part of Microsoft’s E3 press conference, thus leading to speculation the game would be heading to console.

We’ll be interviewing Real Time Worlds this week so hopefully we can find out more.

Stay tuned.

Update: Realtime Worlds has updated the APB FAQ:

Q: “Will there be console ports?”
A: “We’re just starting to evaluate opportunities for a console port but do not have anything to announce yet.”

Thanks, Superfrog.

Update 2: Team Xbox cornered a RTW spokesperson who claimed: “”We’re not giving details out at the moment, but it is being developed for Xbox 360.” Which kind of did the opposite of what the spokesperson said it would. But there you go.

The saga continues.

Thanks, Blerk-o.
