APB: All Points Bulletin may be coming back soon. The MMO shooter went offline in September after receiving mixed reviews. However, K2 Network, a company that specialized in localizing free-to-play games from Asia, has just acquired the intellectual property rights for APB from Realtime Worlds for £1.5 million.
APB originally used a monthly subscription business model. It’s expected that K2 Network will re-launch the title as a free-to-play game with micro-transactions. K2 Network is the company behind titles like Knight Online, War Rock, and Sword of the New World.
