APB Key to the City Delayed

By Published June 10, 2010 at 12:34 pm

Realtime Worlds announced today that eagerly awaited MMO Shooter, All Points Bulletin, has delayed its promised early access to the game. APB is due for release at the end of the month, but those who pre-ordered via Steam and other digital distribution outlets were informed of a 'Key to the City' event, granting them early access to the game on June 10th. The developer released a statement this morning apologizing for the delay:

"Realtime Worlds would like to announce that, due to a number of issues, we will be delaying the launch of the Key to the City event by 48 hours."


Due to alledged hardware issues, the company will not be able to make the early date at the promised time, but they have announced the new date as June 12th (Saturday) at 9AM EDT.

"We’ve worked tirelessly to bring the service online, installing and configuring a massive amount of new hardware in our data-centres, to help meet the high demand and bring you the best experience we can. As we’re sure you’ll appreciate, this is a huge undertaking and unfortunately on this occasion, we’ve hit a number of installation delays. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience. We’re aware you’re all eager to get out onto the streets of San Paro and rest assured that we’re doing our best to bring everything online to give you the smoothest experience possible."

There is good news, though! Realtime Worlds posted in a news bulletin that thousands of public keys would be released alongside the pre-order keys.

"Not only that, but we've got thousands of keys we're releasing to the public, so you'll be able to pick a key up from your favourite website!"

What are you waiting for? Go grab 'em!

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
