APB Gets Caught, Gets Death Sentence

All Points Bulletin, the MMO that sunk Realtime Worlds, is going the way of Tabula Rasa.

Posting today on APB.com, community officer, Ben Bateman, announced today that APB was going to be closed at an undisclosed time. Here's the quote:

APB has been a fantastic journey, but unfortunately that journey has come to a premature end. Today we are sad to announce that despite everyone's best efforts to keep the service running; APB is coming to a close. It's been a pleasure working on APB and with all its players. Together we were building an absolutely amazing game, and for that, we thank you. You guys are awesome!
From all of the Realtime World staff we thank you for your continued support. The servers are still up, so join the party and say goodbye!
- Ben 'APBMonkey' Bateman (Community Officer)

I gotta be honest. I was really excited for APB. I thought the idea sounded fantastic and I could wait to see if this MMO, this one MMO, could finally sink its hooks into me unlike any other. Then I played the beta.

I took everything I saw and did with a grain of salt, playing in a beta obviously cannot present a complete experience. Nevertheless, my hopes were dashed. I doubt I'll ever play an MMO seriously.

You can read more of the developers own words on the matter by clicking through to APB's web portal. Get at it while it's still there.
