Kingdoms Of Amalur Rights Will Likely Go To Auction This Month

koa1

After the demise of 38 Studios last year many feared that we’d never see a sequel to Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, a great fantasy RPG that found itself a loyal and deserved fanbase. However, there may still be hope as the rights to Kingdoms of Amalur are apparently going up for auction this month.

Richard Land, the court-appointed receiver for 38, told WPRI that: “The process is taking longer than we anticipated for a variety of reasons including the complexity of the game itself. We have engaged an auctioneer and they are developing an Internet marketplace – or website – to market the game.”

While Land does not yet have an exact date he is due to meet auctioneer this week and expects to nail down an exact date. Land does however expect the auction website to go live this month, and has also confirmed that there has already been interest in purchasing the rights.

It’s unlikely the Kingdoms of Amalur license will sell for very much given that it’s a fairly unknown brand with only one title to its name. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning didn’t sell very well, either.

Another 38 Studios titled Copernicus is also due to go up for sale. Copernicus was the project name given to the MMO 38 Studios intended to create which would take place with the Kingdoms of Amalur universe.

Of course the big question is that if somebody does snatch up the rights, just who will it be? Fans are already salivating at the idea of a company like Bioware or Bethesda picking up the rights, but only time will tell.

Fingers crossed, because I really did love Reckoning, and would be interested in seeing a sequel, even if it isn’t from the same people.

About Baden Ronie

I always hate writing about myself, it's such a pain in the ass to know where I should start. I'm twenty-two years young and love to play, as you may have already guessed. When WolfsGamingBlog.com started up it was simply because I found writing to be a good form of stress relief for when my Cystic Fibrosis was getting me down or simply because I had been having a bad week. When I started writing I never dreamed that people would actually read it, or that it would ever get this big. It's mind boggling. My writing isn't the best, but through trial, error and the comments of readers I strive to improve it so I can provide fair reviews. My ultimate goal is to prove that not everyone in the gaming media are corrupt idiots intent on delivering false reviews. Other than that I'm a fully qualified lifeguard and used to teach first-aid and life-saving skills to kids. What more is there to say? Hmmm, well I love music, reading and films. I'm a drummer, enjoy going swimming and tend to get distracted by shiny objects. Is that a fifty-pence?
