APB was a commercial failure. With developers Realtime Worlds in the can and filing for bankruptcy, the end of days up in Dundee has been detailed by a few ex-employees who tell harrowing tales of the developer collapsing in on itself.

Members of the development team were ushered in to a room, and basically made redundant one by one by tannoy announcements. Management are fairly gutless when it comes to letting people go but this is a new take, and just a notch above being given the boot by text.

Realtime Worlds were responsible for Crackdown, but passed the sequel over to sister developer Ruffian.

Lets hope those staff manage to find gainful employment soon.
