APB: Reloaded is getting another revamp. Little Orbit has purchased the action MMO and plans to revitalize the game. The announcement from Little Orbit CEO Matthew Scott promises to keep the community of players informed and acknowledges that the new owners have a lot of work ahead of them. One of the big first tasks revealed is an engine upgrade from Unreal Engine 3 to 4. New content is slated as well as housekeeping like GDPR updates to player agreements.
There’s been a lot of speculation over the last couple months about who would be crazy enough to take on this game. And I’m not going to try and sugarcoat it, we know that the confidence in this game is at an all time low, and odds are you haven’t heard of us at Little Orbit. But that’s OK.
APB: Reloaded infamously began as the ill-fated followup to Crackdown from RealTime Worlds in 2010. After liquidation and shutdown that same year, the game was purchased by K2 Network and published by GamersFirst in most of the world. Although it’s not very popular in the US, the game has dedicated fans in South America and Russia.
