EA Would "Love" To Publish Kingdoms Of Amalur 2

"We Thought The Game Was Terrific"

Despite 38 Studios' distastrous financial situation, EA would love to publish a sequel to this year's well-reviewed RPG Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning.

“I think it’s unfortunate how everything worked out [for 38 Studios]," EA labels president Frank Gibeau told Videogamer. "At the end of the day, we saw a lot of creativity and vision in the team that Curt [Schilling] put together. We thought the game was terrific. It reviewed well."

“We built a good business there and hope there’s a sequel to it someday,” he continued. “We’d love to be a partner for that.”

Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning certainly reviewed and charted well, and a sequel was reportedly in pre-production before 38 Studios' financial collapse.

Whether this situation could actually happen, however, remains to be seen. EA ceded the rights to the Kingdoms Of Amalur IP in order to acquire a bigger cut of the proceeds, and the rights currently reside with the state of Rhode Island. Many Big Huge Games staffers have already found new roles, several departing to a newly-formed Epic Games studio. Are EA waiting for the dust to settle before swooping in with an offer for the Reckoning license?
