The atmosphere has been turbulent in the industry since Scottish developer Realtime Worlds went into administration, with companies surging into the Dundee area to help provide support to the employees involved. However, Develop reports that there may be hope yet, as there is word that a buyout of the collapsed studio.

“Discussions are continuing and we are expecting to make an announcement next week,” said a spokesperson for the developer’s administrator, Begbies Traynor (wow, hell of a name you've got there).

Realtime Worlds were previously working on a social gaming title called Project Myworld, which was purchased by an anonymous American company last week. Word is that several companies are making inquiries into purchasing the Realtime Worlds business, but there is no word as to which companies have put in bids just yet.

We'll keep you updated, but let's hope whatever happens, it benefits the people affected by the original administration. Losing your job in a sudden upheaval is just not cool.
