Realtime Worlds boss David Jones is returning to the game that sunk his company, by taking an advisory role on the board of GamersFirst - the company set to publish APB: Reloaded.
Jones will "share his vast game design experience" for the reboot of the game APB: Reloaded, which is now adopting a free-to-play model.
"This game was my passion back when I was developing it with Realtime Worlds, and I'm extremely excited to be able to participate in fulfilling the long term vision for the title," said Jones.
"After seeing what the team has done with the game thus far, I'm certain that APB Reloaded will become the title that truly breaks new ground for online game experiences, especially with transition to a free-to-play model."
A number of ex-Realtime Worlds staff have started smaller businesses since the collapse of the studio, and GamersFirst has committed to opening a smaller studio in Scotland to support the new version of APB.
