    (note: Wednesday night 11:00pm PST update):

    To clarify - the patch itself (version 76) doesn't actually perform the Punkbuster update, it only changes our game so that it can use the update from the Punkbuster side. We are now waiting for PB to push the change live on their end, and once their systems have been updated as well, then we expect the stuttering issue to be resolved.
    We expect this update to happen sometime overnight between Wednesday and Thursday PST (so Thursday morning in Europe).

    "I truly wish we had the chance to continue to craft APB into the vision we had for it. It has been a long & difficult journey but ultimately rewarding to have had the chance to try somet…
