We know that events in the video gaming industry are cyclical, but we never expected them to cycle quite this fast. Dundee, Scotland-based developer Realtime Worlds developed APB
before being shut down
last year. The IP was then picked up by developer GamersFirst, who is now opening a new studio
in Edinburgh, Scotland under the moniker Reloaded Productions.
The new studio will import the staff that's currently working to rebuild the interrupted online FPS, and will also open up 22 additional positions for folks who live in the area. Perhaps some Realtime Worlds staffers who haven't quite gotten back on their feet yet could land in these new openings! Not only would that add to the cyclical nature of the project
, but it would also be a great example of human resource recycling. Go green, Reloaded Productions!
