Realtime Worlds Rehiring Employees To Finish Project: MyWorld

It's been a rough few months for Realtime Worlds. After the less than stellar release of its MMO shooter APB, the developer was forced to lay off a significant portion of its staff and file for bankruptcy. But today we learned of what might be a silver lining: The company is reportedly hiring back some of its staff to finish its latest title, Project: MyWorld.

GI.biz is reporting that as many as 23 of MyWorld's staff may be rehired to finish the project, which the company hopes to have finished by spring of 2011. According to an anonymous source, the deal to rehire the employees is "just a matter of finalizing the paperwork."

The initial staff size for Project: MyWorld was reportedly 60 employees, so the developer will still be working at a considerable loss, but it's good to see there's still some hope. Have no idea what Project: MyWorld is? This video shows off some of the interesting aspects of this ambitious-looking project.
