Realtime Worlds has revealed that a buyer could emerge for APB.
The latest patch update for the game said that the studio's period of administation could be coming to an end.
"It looks like there might be light at the end of the tunnel for APB. The end of the administration process is apparently close and there appears to be a buyer for the game."
Earlier this month it was announced that negotiations were ongoing with several interested groups.
Last month it was announced that the MMO would be shut down following the Dundee-based studio going into administration earlier this year.
