Like the title said: "When can we expect more news?"

 

 

I basically stopped playing apb a few months ago but am still reading the forums on a daily base. Checking the admin tracker every day hoping for a post with any news.

Is it that difficult to see the community is waiting for any kind of news rather than just posts about how there is no news? 
If there is no news, it would probably be a good idea to create news. More and more players are quitting the game, and I can imagine this will also affect Gamersfirst financially. 

 

- How about the PS4 screenshots / videos? It was said to be requested but after 3 weeks still no update on it.

It was said the PS4 release was expected last month. Most of us probably realise there are issues keeping it from being released, but why not keep the waiting community up-to date? Let us know some of the issues, the bumps in the road keeping us from playing the new engine. 

 

 

I'm not trying to create a new "Bash the company!" kind of topic. No intentions are in creating a topic full of negativity. I'm mostly in for a new positive approach regarding communication. Learnt from the past, it's not something we can demand, just hope for.

Thanks. This kind of feedback is exactly the proof that communication lacks.
I'm not saying it's the worst, but it's simply not enough.

Since Tiggs became Community manager, the communication has definitely gone up. Definitely if you realise that it was almost a whole year of nothing.
However, it's just not good enough to keep this game alive. Repeating the same thing over and over that there is nothing new, keeps feeling like a bigger punch in the face every time we get it. Or for those who simply don't care anymore it's most likely even a funny joke.

 there are issues keeping it from being released

 

Issues, huh? I am not sure if trying to push a product that does not qualify as a playable through all of Ps4's certifications is a valid word. Mistake, perhaps might be more appropriate.

You expect to much from them. We beg for communication, they meet the demand with silence. 
Thats the way its been, after promising we will have so much communication we will be sick of it.

Sincerely wish they would just give some sort of update, just to prove that something's happening.

At this point im actually amazed this game has any player base. Why keep supporting a company that has no issues with treating its players like crap? They obviously dont care about us, otherwise they would talk to us.

Tiggs said about a week ago that they were going to be discussing the release date on PS4 with Sony. Wonder what happened to that.

They never keep there promises and they always keep us in the dark.

There's no news because there is no news.  The fvcked up big time committing to the console releases and have dug their graves.  IF the PS4 release ever happens, it will probably be the last release period.  Too many mistakes were made, too much time has passed, there simply is nothing to tell until the doors close for good.

Well, I'd like to see new JMB. There's nothing I'd like to play with of current legendary weapons we have. Maybe except Dow, OCSP and BM.

She didn't say it was a meeting with Sony. Could be as well some skype call with leftovers of dev team to discus if they will be ready in one year or 10.

Mad? No... I'm the only sane one left!

I play Dota and Dark Souls these days... APB is a "Watch to see if it turns into anything decent" game now.

Only difference is, a company like Valve has the money to maintain a dead game for years. Unlike g1.

Not really. The game will die without players (questionable in this case) and financial backup.
You can still run business without uttering a word to your customers, some may buy your products regardless, but it hurts the public image.
Which is something G1 could not care less in this point.

In fact the company even uses other non-APB sources of revenues to subsidize part of the APB team, and for as long as we have run the game, the company (what you refer to as Reloaded, GamersFirst etc. which is really the same thing) has never once taken out a penny in profits from APB. Every penny spent by players goes back into continuing the development, with the plan that one day in the future “All Points Bulletin” and all its successor games will be large meaningful franchises, where players can move freely between different game versions.


I'd speculate Bjorn used Reloaded Technologies profits to sustain the new engine development.
What I wonder is how good that partnership with Deep Silver ended up.
Seems like The Workshop Entertainment couldn't quite figure out the APB beast & Reloaded ended up shouldering most of the port.

But financially, how much did they contribute?

 

 

We should have a talk about the F2P model & Armas soon.

Pretty sure the Console ports won't pay up as much as expected, and the PC playerbase will remain the major source of revenue.
Have you ever seen wealthy & engaged Console players? Sure, you'd think porting to console will reach a broader market, but the reality is that most of the target audience is underaged. Example

 

So yeah, we need to have some communication on it Soon, because I'm pretty sure Reloaded doesn't realize how much more money they could make with minor additions & adjusments to Armas, without creating new content. (Plot Twist: Pay2Win guns and Gambling JMBs aren't part of the strategy)

Yeah i never quite understood the decision to move the game to consoles, i'm pretty sure that PC has always been the most lucrative home for Free 2 plays.

 

And i imagine that having to develop all future updates for consoles aswell now, will just make the development cycle even slower.

 

I guess that lifeline of money forced them to do it, but i just don't get who in their right mind would think it was a good move.

At what point can we realistically say, "They could have just started from scratch and made an entirely new version or sequel by now."?

I really feel like if they had decided to do that a long time ago, we'd be further along than we are now? Maybe they don't even have the manpower to do such a thing - I don't know much about their company and what they're able to do over there.

Or is that what the new engine is? Did they scrap everything for this or continue to try and rework the old code? I don't know much about coding or the details of what they're doing. Not even entirely sure what an engine is, lol.
