APB Buyer Found

Reports have emerged that someone has finally bought the rights to short-lived Cops'n'Robbers MMO All Points Bulletin.

GamesIndustry (http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2010-11-11-k2-network-buys-rights-to-apb) has said that K2 Network, owner of free-to-play games service GamersFirst bought the IP rights to the game for £1.5 million. K2 Network specialises in adapting, localising and hosting Asian free-to-play games for western audiences.

APB was made by the now-defunct Dundee based studio RealTimeWorlds. The studio went into administration after the game got off to an abysmal start. It was later shut down in September, making it one of the most short-lived MMO's in history.

K2 Networks or GamersFirst have yet to comment on the story.
