“Big, dramatic, and dare I say exciting things are afoot!”
Thus begins APB: Reloaded’s latest dev blog, penned by Community Manager Tiggs and Producer Joshua “capnjosh” Clausen. The duo explain that the UK team recently laid off “a number of people” and that “the APB Team will begin to move over to the US office.”
“The Future of APB is a bright one – we don’t have any plans of closing down and quite honestly there is a palpable excitement in the air. We do want to move forward with the PS4 release and Engine Upgrade. PS4 update is the main priority right now, since we need to get all platforms up to the same code base before we can complete a number of engine-level changes we all know are of such great interest. Yes, I know you’ve heard all this before; it actually is what needs to happen. We’re hoping to have this (PS4 release) completed in September. I’m not sure of a time line on the Engine Upgrade at this time, and I don’t want to say an estimated time until I can delve into things deeper to see where we are at.”
Gamersfirst is also apparently working on a dynamic event system and the moving of Brazilian players to the core servers.
