Kingdoms of Amalur dev to come back from the grave?

Authored by

Undoubtedly, one of 2012′s biggest stories in gaming was the whole fiasco that was 38 Studios and their game, Kindgoms of Amalur: Reckoning.

Oddly enough, it’s not the actual game where this whole issue started but from the game’s development house and the government of Rhode Island.

Long story short, the game didn’t do as well as expected, and 38 Studios amassed a ton of debt in the process. After the dust has settled, the state of Rhode Island now owns the Amalur IP and the studio was shuttered down…or at least that’s what we thought.

Now, 38 Studios’ website is “live” once more. While no actual game or press statement has been released, there is this sentence splashed on the center that might mean the studio is gearing for a relaunch.

Please Excuse the Mess, We’re Moving In

Does this mean a new Amalur game is in the works or that we’ll see 38 Studios rise once more? We can’t say for now. Could Rhode Island themselves have started this to drum up hype for a sequel to Reckoning or might someone have purchased the domain and just messing with people?
Hopefully, all these questions and more will be answered soon. Needless to say, we’ll be digging more info about it and will keep everyone posted.

      • Dark souls was garbage.

        You basicly compare 2 games with great stories and one that has either. YOu compare 2 games with solid open world, upgrade system, controls and combat and one that fails misserably and is linear with little choices.

         
    • Indeed. Way better. I would say Amalur was more fun than Dark Souls as well but Dark Souls was pretty damn good. Both are definitely better than Skyrim.

       
          • Sure, it couldnt be the awful story or more of lack of story. Or the horrible translation and voice acting. Or maybe the awful levels that feel like they were made for RE4, or maybe the borring gameplay, or is it the horrible camera and the GARBAGE target lock system. Difficulity aside, i found no redeeming values in dark souls.

  1. Havn’t played it, but i’ve seen gameplay of it and it kind of looks like your generic 3rd person hack and slash, but i know people are fans of it so good for them.

     
  2. Nice to see the company coming back. This industry needs variety, story driven games. The game does look like a generic hack and slash and borrows seems to borrow elements from other games in its genre like dragon age.

     
  3. I read many of the blogs in the food and drink category and they are all informative in one way or another. I love food and have a great deal of food design experience. Please let me know how I may become a blogger there..
