Ascaron still owns the license to Sacred, and it was not part of the IPs that Kalypso recently purchased from the troubled company.
According to the Sacred message boards, community manager Anca Adelina Finta stated:
“Studio 2 (subsidiary company of Ascaron) has the license for Sacred 2 and the devs will continue working at the add-on as they did before. In a nutshell, the add-on is not affected by anything and will come as planned.”
Good news for fans of the series.
