Electronic Arts is hopeful that a sequel to Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning sees the light of day, and would enjoy being a publishing partner for the potential project, EA Labels president Frank Gibeau told the Game Informer magazine (via Videogamer).
"I think it's unfortunate how everything worked out [for 38 Studios]," Gibeau said. "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. We'd love to be a partner for that."
Following the launch of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning in February, 38 Studios founder and former Major League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling revealed a sequel was in the works. It is unclear what the status of this project is presently, as 38 Studios laid off its entire staff in May, on its way to filing for bankruptcy, and becoming the subject of an FBI investigation.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning won warm reviews across the board and sold 1.2 million copies, outperforming EA's sales estimates, according to Schilling. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's review.
