Publisher THQ Nordic has acquired the rights to the Kingdoms of Amalur IP.

THQ Nordic announced the acquisition on Twitter, stating that Kingdoms of Amalur, “among other assets,” had been acquired from the defunct 38 Studios. The “other assets” is likely referring to Project Copernicus, an ambitious MMO title that was in development at 38 Studios prior to the developer’s bankruptcy in 2012.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is an action role-playing game, released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in February 2012. The game received a positive response, but developer 38 Studios declared bankruptcy in May 2012, ceasing operations and laying off all staff.

The acquisition of 38 Studios’s assets has fuelled hope for a sequel to Reckoning, which maintained a loyal fanbase since release.

THQ Nordic also acquired the Timesplitters and Second Sight IPs last month.

His favourite games are those with deep and captivating narratives: while it would take far too long to list them all, some include L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption (and its sequel), Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Last of Us, and the Uncharted series.
