APB Reloaded open beta “on hold”

APB Reloaded‘s open beta, expected to launch yesterday, did not launch yesterday.

Going by the game’s official dev blog, a hiccup related to “a new player disconnection issue,” which raised its head in the two days preceding, is to blame. As a result, the open beta is on hold “until further notice.”

“The issue manifests itself in disconnecting some groups of players after one to two hours of gameplay, which clearly is not acceptable in Open Beta,” explains the blog.

“We are clearly disappointed that this afternoon’s public launch has been put temporarily on hold, but in the end we strongly believe that first addressing this issue is the most critical and important step we can take as a development team.”

Expect updates as they come in.
