Do you think any company would buy this game with it's track record?

Even if, it's gonna be some small company that drives it into the wall just like RTW and G1 did.

 

Sadly.

Has anyone actually read the description of it? 

"Territory is vulnerable 24/7, with players constantly engaged in battles for control. For periods when they are not online, players must upgrade their defenses changing turf features or equipping AI adequately or run the risk of losing their turf to a rival Gang or Squad. Capturing multiple turf areas gets progressively harder, but provides correspondingly better rewards."

What is that all about??

In hopes, if they are putting this out, could there be a chance of a big boom and a final Revive? 

Just hoping that G1 is putting effort in one last bang in the right direction!

I would say to take the release... year with a grain of salt; it's only a guestimate until it's actually announced when the release date actually is. Usually Gamepressure will tick over the year when the new year comes along.

 

We still have 8 full months to go.

I think someone messed up copy and pasting that second point. Especially since it still says webzen too. This is a suuuuuper old description of the game back from like 2007.

My biggest worry is that if 2018 is actually a release date that happens to be the case, what about the PC engine upgrade? Does that mean it gets pushed back another year until the PS4 release happens? If so, I don't really know if people will even care anymore by that point.

By the time they actually will proceed with the pc new engine(engine upgrade of the Ue3) the game will be already dead.The game will perform worse and worse and it seems like g1 has lost their control over some things such as game performance.I heard some roumers that the engine will not be new,will just be an updated version of the UE3 wich is already runig ...you know...backwords.

"PERSISTENT TURF WAR.
Both Gangs and Law Enforcement will continuously attempt to capture key areas of the city and expand their spheres of influence. These ‘turf areas’ offer access to the best gear, while persistently displaying their owner’s status and symbols. Territory is vulnerable 24/7, with players constantly engaged in battles for control. For periods when they are not online, players must upgrade their defenses changing turf features or equipping AI adequately or run the risk of losing their turf to a rival Gang or Squad. Capturing multiple turf areas gets progressively harder, but provides correspondingly better rewards."

OK, what?
No, but seriously... WHAT.

It's a promo text back from 2009 or so, I believe.

Turf wars were supposed to be additional activity players could do outside of missions, but it didn't worked out well, again, due to human nature.

Tom Stockwell even illustrated this concept, you should be able to find it somewhere... somewhere.

 



I'd be very surprised if G1 believes APB is going to keep making them money up until 2018. I can't imagine the player numbers by say October of this year.

The game population has been pretty much stagnant for the last year, so maybe there is still hope chance to keep the dying cash cow alive long enough.

That's why i vouch for Epic Games. They are the ones who have created the Engine, so they would certainly know how to make it work.

2018 is most likely the year of APB's closure. G1st is really silent right now and something must be going afoot...

 

They cant promise us close dates because they know they wont make it to deadline.

Why do people keep thinking APB is suddenly going to shut down. There are even more deader games under G1's belt and APB is still profitable for them. Wait until some of their other games shutdown before you start saying APB is going soon. APB won't be gone until games such as Fallen Earth are gone.

How do you know they're still profitable?

- Figures within fiscal reports from K2 the past 5 years, such as them making millions off APB before it even went to steam, then of course earning even more when the boom of steam launch happened.

- Dev Talks of making APB profitable showing large profits earned.

- General mentions of such from posts by Tiggs over the past year.

- General estimations based on population.

- Restructuring of of G1/RP in to a unified team in Merica.

- Contracts with other companies.

- Lack of shut down of not just APB but other games under G1's belt that are likely to go first if there is anything up.

- Dropping of some employees is likely an indicator of lesser profit but still not running in to the negative.

- Whales gonna whale.

- Expansion of RP to other games such as Hawken.

For those who say APB is going to close down:
G1 is a very small company and APB is the only game they get paychecks from. If it closes down, G1 will bankrupt.
As far as I know - noone wants to lose their job :)

-The restructuring was a complete lay off of the UK team, which made up roughly 20-30 of their employees. This was also where most of the dev team were for the game, including their entire QA department.

-G1 won't likely shut down anything. Case in point Fallen Earth. Barely 100 people play it and they still don't do anything with it.

-Dropping employees usually denotes running into the negative in terms of monthly turn over or future profit estimations. Not claiming this to be the case, but you generally don't lay off staff if you can afford to pay for them.

-Eh, they will, but there have been valid points made

-They "Expanded" to HAWKEN, only to sell it off again months later. Their dev team that was working on the HAWKEN side of things was part of the UK team. Reloaded Games no longer have the game as far as I know.
