APB Reloaded. The first person shooter MMO started its life in Scotland at developer Realtime Worlds only to have both the game and the developer shut down operations a few months after APB went live back in 2010. Now the team behind the game's upcoming revival, GamersFirst, has decided to open up a new development studio in Scotland.
The BBC reports that GamersFirst's subsidiary Reloaded Productions will open the new studio in Edinburgh with 22 people hired at first. Realtime Worlds was based in Dundee and when it shut down last fall it caused 250 people to lose its jobs. Meanwhile the revival of APB Reloaded is still in closed beta testing with an open beta to start later this year.
