APB Dev Is Also Working On Another MMOG

APB Dev Is Also Working On Another MMOG

In addition to upcoming MMOG APB, Crackdown developer Realtime Worlds is working on another "very ambitious" MMOG project that they'll announce next year.

Realtime Worlds is certainly living up to the "worlds" part of its name. After making supercop sandbox game Crackdown and the upcoming MMOG All Points Bulletin, the studio still has more worlds to reveal. As creative director Dave Jones revealed today, Realtime Worlds is working on another MMOG in addition to APB.

Referring to the game as a "very ambitious project" that his studio is "very excited about," Jones would say nothing more than to look forward to more next year. "It's even more ambitious than APB," he told Gamasutra. "We'll enjoy talking about that in 2010."

Ambitious has to be the key word for the project, because Realtime Worlds has been working on it since its inception in 2002. This MMOG was the first game the studio ever worked on, the original game it raised money to create. So it must be something that's very close to the hearts of Jones and his team. Let's hope it'll see the light of day before too long.

Duke Nukem Forever anyone. But really if a PC game is more than 5 years old them by the time it's released it will be obsolete technology wise. Unless you are purposely going for a retro feel.

Crackdown online???? it could work but not likely

Chuck Norris: The Game. It shall be released in 2012, without his permission.

And his rage shall bring forth the end, and rebirth by crumpet.

Okay, so, like, you're a cop and you fight criminals, see? But it's in third person. Because that's all they know how to make.

That's it? No information, just acknowledgement of the project's existence?

Well, I'm glad I know that, I guess...

While on the topic of APB, what consoles is it for?

OT; If it's for console without an additional cost, I'm all for it.

Well, then StarCraft II in your opinion will be obsolete. Anyway, I think Blizzard has done a great job on the graphic in the latest BattleReport 3. Their games pretty much don't get outdated easily.

Wasn't John Romero "very excited" about the ambitious DaiKatana?

(Anyone who says "Who?" or "What?", kindly leave the internet)

I played Daikatana over Gametap, it's not as bad as everyone says it is, it's nowhere near good, sure, but it's just that it's probably the most over hyped game of all ages.

If I remember correctly SC2 was announced in 2007, two years ago. I guess they could have been working on it longer than that but I don't know how you'd be able to know.

They've been working on it since 2003 with a relatively small group until the announcement in 2007.

OK, you are right. But that must mean that they didn't actually make any graphics of it, or updated the graphics that they had because I don't think computers could make those graphics back in those days. So I would guess they were just working on concept design and what not, not the actual technical graphics and gameplay.
