My guess they will redo it as a free MMO and fill it up with ad space. Think of this as an expanded version of GTA4 with Obama Hope Change posters everywhere
I think the big mistake was more banking on a game that was in development hell for so long. I was hyped for the MMO/Sandbox hybrid, but it was a couple years back. By the time it finally came out, I think it was probably too little, too late for too many people.Xzi said:I played the beta, and it really wasn't all that bad. I think their mistake was targeting two separate types of gamer with this single game. GTA lovers, and MMO lovers. Given enough time, however, I think it would gain popularity. It was just a very obscure title at launch.
Probably because Coldplay nicked it from the same source.Nouw said:Reminds me of the line in 'Viva La Vida'
"Listen as the crowd would sing, now the old king is dead long live the king."
Hmmm... hopefully they do it right this time.

it failed because it had glaring flaws yes but the overall game concept (and some of the implementation) was good and quite intriguing.JUMBO PALACE said:Why would another developer buy APB? It failed the first time for a reason didn't it?
The line you quoted is based on the classic line "The King is dead; long live the King," Which is what the thread's title references.Nouw said:I am confused.
