THQ Nordic today announced that the acquisition of the intellectual property Kingdoms of Amalur has been finalized with 38 Studios LLC, based in Providence, RI, US. The deal also covered the acquisition of the Amalur, based on the abandoned MMORPG project “Copernicus.”
The acquisition itself is being handled by THQ Nordic AB, based in Karlstad, Sweden, and daily operations will be done via THQ Nordic GmbH in Vienna, Austria.
The minds of New York Times bestselling author R.A. Salvatore, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion lead designer Ken Rolston combined to create Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, a role-playing game set in a world worth saving. Released in 2012, the game let players choose their path and battle through a master-crafted universe featuring some of the most intense, responsive, and customizable RPG combat ever.
There’s no news on whether THQ Nordiq will develop new Amalur titles yet.
