EA Wants to Publish Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning 2…After Developers 38 Studios and Big Huge Games Have Closed Shop
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning was a great EA-published action-RPG that didn’t sell well enough to keep developers 38 Studios and Big Huge Games in business. If there ever was a sequel, however, it seems that EA would want to publish it. Speaking with Game Informer magazine, EA Labels president Frank Gibeau explained that EA ” saw a lot of creativity and vision in the team that Curt [Schilling] put together. We thought the game was terrific. It reviewed well.” He said that–because of this–EA wants “to be a partner” for a potential Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning sequel.
-Nick’s take: I’d love to see a sequel to the unfortunate Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, but that isn’t going to happen since the developers are out of business. It’s a shame when a promising new potential franchise such as this is cut short.
