Last week we reported that GamersFirst had purchased failed MMO APB for a cool £1.5 million and today the new owners have spoken of what the future holds for the recently acquired IP.
"APB was a game that had several exceptional features and some brilliant ideas, even though it was plagued by some initial balance and monetization issues," explained Bjorn Book-Larsson, CTO and COO of GamersFirst.
"We want to take all the unique features of this title, such as its unparalleled character, weapon and car customisation systems, and convert the game to a true free-to-play game.
"We are deep into the planning and early execution stages for this next chapter of APB and we will share more details in the near future. In order to put ‘Gamers First’ we will also actively engage the community in many aspects of all the planned changes."
APB is scheduled to relaunch during the first half of next year and if its new owners can tweak the shooting mechanics to make them feel more responsive, this MMO could finally fulfil its long promised potential.
