Fans of urban crime games like Grand Theft Auto
should have something to look forward to in 2010, with the release of All Points Bulletin
from Realtime Worlds
. It's an MMO-like game where you'll be able to go on rampages through city streets with hundreds of other players, either as criminals or the vigilantes who hunt them. We learned at E3 2009
that All Points Bulletin
is slated for an "early 2010" release, in partnership with Electronic Arts
, but now rumor has it that APB
will release in March.
UK gaming site MCV
reports, "The hotly-tipped APB by Scottish developer Realtime Worlds will arrive at retail in March, MCV can reveal."
EA is still sticking with "early 2010", however, according to our parent site Joystiq
. If we get any solid confirmation of the All Points Bulletin
release date, we'll definitely give this a mention.
