It seems that All Points Bulletin’s life was a short-lived one. Realtime Worlds recently went into serious financial trouble and despite finding a buyer for upcoming game Project: MyWorld, APB didn’t get the same luck. It seems that the game may be shut down within the next 24 hours, despite all the negotiations that never came to a favorable end.

Here’s the official announcement in the APB forum:

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!
