The recently revamped All Points Bulletin Web site has been lacking regular updates for the past month, which is most likely due to the game's presence at conventions during this hectic season. But despite the lack of updates, a comment made to a Eurogamer staff member at the Penny Arcade Expo regarding the upcoming closed beta test shows the team is still hard at work putting the finishing touches on APB, which is tentatively scheduled to launch "early" next year.
According to Eurogamer, community officer Chris Collins said the team is "weeks rather than months away from starting closed beta." The comment was made following a presentation of an extensive APB demo. If you're interested in participating in the beta, you can still register by filling out this application.
