38 Studios first and only released title- Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning - was developed by subsidiary Big Huge Games and released back in February. The action RPG sold an estimated 1.3 million copies and was met with fairly positive reviews. But the game sales were not enough to help keep the company afloat. And despite the downfall of 38 Studios, publisher EA would still like to one day see a sequel to the action RPG get made, and according to EA Labels President Frank Gibeau, they wouldn’t mind being a partner for the endeavor.
“We built a good business there and hope there’s a sequel to it someday,” Gibeau told Videogamer. “We’d love to be a partner for that.”
38 Studios is currently in the process of having its assets liquidated, but who may be interested in picking up the gaming IP is unclear for the moment. But according to a recent report from WPRI, Copernicus was said to be nearly 75% complete at the end of May, so it’s possible that a developer/publisher may be willing to pick up the property and continue development at some point.
