Computer and Video Games has an article based on comments from former Realtime Worlds staff being critical of the way the game's development was handled as the developer simultaneously headed into the launch of APB: All Points Bulletin and insolvency. Most of the article is based on a previously reported forum post allegedly by an ex-RTW employee, but they also quote the personal blog of Luke Halliwell who worked there for six years: "There had been mounting discontent internally about the competence of our top management - and what better proof could you need than this. How they could keep operating the company when they couldn't even pay this month's wages, I don't know. Presumably they continued to think we had a chance somehow; the behaviour of a deluded, greedy, addicted gambler." They also have a follow-up quote from Halliwell's wife, who adds: "Dave Jones and Ian Hetherington have pissed away millions, they are getting away with not paying over 200 employees for the work that they have done and have fiddled their way to being able to buy back Project: MyWorld for cheap. Moreover these very people have enough personal wealth to pay the money owed to the individuals and families whose lives they have left shattered, heck Dave could probably pay them all just by selling one of his beloved cars." Thanks joao.
