All Points Bulletin: APB Servers Are Shutting Down

This is probably the shortest lived MMO in video game history. It was just announced that All Points Bulletin would be closing it’s servers and for good. Despite efforts to keep them online, Realtime Worlds has decided that they can no longer keep the servers up and running for everyone.

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)

For all those who are still playing APB, this is probably a sad day for you. It makes me wonder what’s going to happen to all of those who already had game time purchased and saved.

APB to close tomorrow [PC Gamer Thanks, Nox]

    I about bought it and saw how repetitive it was. And now this so I’m super glad I didn’t get it.

    Well it had a good run………….actually NO IT DIDN’T LOL. I played the beta, and was pretty boring then, and watching Kreyg play it, just shows that even if it is a great idea for a game. Then if it does not deliver, people take notice, and this is the result.
