Curt Schilling Hints at Kingdoms of Amalur Sequel

Posted Wed, Feb 15, 2012 by Martuk

38 Studios founder Curt Schilling made an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this week to talk about Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and Fallon's inquiry about a sequel to the newly released action RPG prompted Schilling to respond with, "Oh yeah." That response has gained a lot of media attention this week. While Schilling didn’t elaborate more on any sequel plans, the fact that a follow-up is in the works has been known for some time now.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a prelude to the 38 Studios MMORPG project currently codenamed Copernicus, a game that we still know very little about. Whether or not Schilling was referring to that title, another installment of the Kingdoms of Amalur saga or simply misspoke is unknown, but best-selling fantasy author that R.A. Salvatore has already crafted 10,000 years worth of history for the fictional universe, so there’s certainly plenty of room for another game if they decide to include a second installment before the MMORPG is ready.

Please, don't make it MMO, it would ruin it. A multiplayer option would be enough.

Add more to the story, more cinematics and options, such as:

1. Enrolling in one guild should close all other guilds' enrollments and deciding for a guild should be mandatory for accessing main plot areas. Just like Gothic was.

2. Possibilities of nice romances, similar to Mass Effect's subplots...

3. Different endings, choice of joining the 'evil' side etc.

I agree. That would be a good plot turner and also may I jus say that mmo would kill the idea of the game for me. Would love to kno when sequel will come but I kno it will come in time which is good enough for now
