Kingdoms of Amalur will not be getting a remaster until EA approves
Simply final week, THQ Nordic revealed that it had acquired the IP rights to Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. Followers of the sport had been excited since this might have meant a few issues. A sequel to the sport that by no means bought an opportunity or a remaster of the unique to gauge additional curiosity. Seems that remaster thought is on ice, although, as THQ Nordic confirmed to Eurogamer that EA nonetheless holds the publishing rights on the sport.
“EA nonetheless has the publishing rights to Reckoning,” a rep advised Eurogamer’s Robert Buy. They then continued, “At this stage, we ‘solely’ acquired the mental property. Given our monitor document, we all know what the burning questions (remaster, remake, port to current-gen programs and many others.) are, however we determined don’t reply these particularly as we are inclined to put our heads collectively first after which do our homework, and solely begin to speak about something as soon as we really feel assured and really aware of the franchise.”
Whereas I would not rule out a present gen re-release utterly, it does not appear to be will probably be taking place anytime quickly. You gotta love the convoluted mess that’s company licensing. It is the explanation why we by no means bought that stellar trying Xbox 360 port of GoldenEye 007.
