2009 targeted for Crackdown dev's MMO APB

Realtime Worlds wants to launch the GTA-style MMO "pretty much" worldwide next year

Crackdown developer Realtime Worlds wants to launch its new game, APB, next year.

"We want to launch APB in 2009, which will be pretty much worldwide - including the Asian markets. This is our first big online game", Realtime CEO (and GTA creator) Dave Jones hastold Scotsman.

APB, in a nutshell, drops GTA-style gameplay into an MMO world. It's in development for PC and Xbox 360.

"If we have a big success with APB on the scale of, for example, World of Warcraft, then we could be looking at hundreds of millions of pounds. It just depends what happens after we launched it", Jones added.
