- 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.

 

I kind of meant Fallen Earth specifically. I don't think G1 are losing money specifically, but I don't believe you keep games running if they're barely bringing any money at all, no matter how cheap they are to run. I always presumed the early cash flow has propped up later development for a while.

so, judging by the ps4 release date, we can expect pc release to be a year later than that. we'd be lucky to have it in 2019 at this point.

 

cool, i'll still be able to talk and walk by then, not bad at all.

This date of 2018 can't be true. Theres no way it takes another entire year to launch PS4. I refuse to believe that. Say it ain't so, G1, say it ain't so.

K, game is most definitely dead, rip.


No, I am not that guy named "h0llow" who is AFKing on Citadel Social all the time, proof here. My characters are called "Hollowchick" and "Hoilowchick" so please stop mixing us up, thank you.

You'd be surprised how many companies actually keep older games running despite not making a profit on them while their other games take the brunt. Take Hi-Rez for example, Tribes stopped making them money but they kept the servers going because of the profit coming in from Smite. (Primary source is from talking directly with Hi-Rez Tood face to face.) I wouldn't be surprised if G1 is taking a loss on Fallen Earth by this point and just keeping it open because they are profitable from games like APB and their other array.

For sure I was familiar with the idea that APB was providing enough income to support the other games. This is somewhat evident with the transplant of staff from one game to another. Reloaded Games itself also sells download client software I believe which probably also helps. But I can't deny the idea that there cannot be a huge deal of money coming in as a whole. APB is definitely the main source, and it is one which is drying up.

They are not shutdown. They never have been shut down. Tribes:Ascend servers are still going, even pugs are still played.

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??

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.

They didn't wanna buy it for 1/100th of the original development cost, why would they suddenly be interested now? Besides, they have their hands full with Fortnite, Paragon and UT

Xbox would be doing better than PC right now if they didn't botch the launch so bad. There were quite a few players out of the gates, but everyone fled due to the ridiculous amount of crashing (among other things). Why they pushed it out in the state it was in is beyond me. You can't expect to hook a ton of new players when they can't play for 5 minutes without crashing and losing mission progress.

If the PS4 version runs smoother and doesn't crash like the Xbox, causing them to lose 90% of their new player base in the first month, it will do rather well I think.

Exactly. Watching how APB runs now on xbox seems fine to me. Even when streaming it still doesn't lag that bad and loads all textures.
