Documents obtained by GamesIndustry.biz reveal that three former directors of Realtime Worlds have established a new company linked to the purchase of PC game MyWorld.
Industry veteran Ian Hetherington, venture capitalist Patrick Chung and financier Harry Weller were all on the board at the development studio behind PC flop APB - and are now named as directors of Kimble Operations.
A new report by Gamasutra seemingly confirms earlier suggestions that Kimble Operations has bought MyWorld - a second title in development at Realtime before it closed - keeping on just over 20 staff to complete the project for release next year.
Kimble Operations - originally known as Newincco - was formed in late July this year, just a month after the troubled launch of APB, by legal experts at law firm Olswang LLP.
After changing its name in September, Olswang's Chris Mackie stepped down from the board as Hetherington, Chung and Weller were named as directors just weeks later.
