Report: Realtime Worlds on the verge of buyout

Bankrupt studio Realtime Worlds may have found a buyer. Develop reports that the firm in charge of Realtime's administration proceedings is in talks with a prospective purchaser, with proceedings to be complete by the end of next week unless something goes really wrong. The buyer would become the owner of the Dundee studio, a US office and the APB IP. The bundle will not include Realtime Worlds' Project MyWorld, which was recently sold to an "anonymous American company."

No word yet if the buyer receives APB's human avatar as part of the deal.
