    Grand Theft Auto Online - possibly the best idea in the history of gaming?

    According to rumours circulating on the internet, Crackdown developer Realtime Worlds has just bought back the rights to the APB MMO game it'd been making after selling the rights to a Korean publisher.

    Realtime Worlds, which was founded by GTA creator David Jones, had been working on APB since the release of Crackdown and the game was basically being billed as an online version of Grand Theft Auto.

    Now though the rumour, according to some insider sources cited by Eurogamer, is that Realtime Worlds has bought the license back so that APB can be re-badged and sold to Rockstar as a ready-made Grand Theft Auto Online game.

    Why Realtime bought the license back from Korean games publisher Webzen is currently unconfirmed, but given the recent release of Grand Theft Auto IV and the fact that Realtime worlds has a history of replicating the success of the GTA franchise, it certainly looks likely.

    Realtime Worlds is currently keeping schtum on all these rumours of course and has said it only bought back the rights to the game to "give themselves some options".

    ?????

    Yeah , I heard that they are rebranding cops and robbers as GTA: online.
    Apparently they are approaching rockstar who have said that they are looking at all options.
    However the EA takeover deal which TakeTwo have been refusing may affect this.

    In other news. Atari is no longer in the NASDAQ

    there were MMO servers for SAMP. Where everyone had different jobs
