EA labels president Frank Gibeau has said hopes a sequel to Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning will be made, and that EA would “love” to the publishing partner.

Speaking with Videogamer, Gibeau said: “I think it’s unfortunate how everything worked out [for 38 Studios]. 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,” he continued. “We’d love to be a partner for that.”

Reckoning sold 1.2 million copies, which was above EA’s sales estimates, and Schilling has said there was a sequel in works at one time.

However, back in May, Schilling claimed the various¬†comments Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee made to the media regarding 38 Studios ‚Äúscared” the private investor on board, eventually dropping out of the deal and taking its $35 million with it.
