38 Studios auction brings in “robust” $180,000

Friday, 19th October 2012 00:33 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The first batch of assets from shuttered developers 38 Studios and Big Huge Games went on auction this week and drew in $180,000 for the benefit of creditors. Polygon reports auctioneers described the final figure as “robust” and considered the auction to have been well-attended both in-person and online. It’s the first of three planned sell-offs to help recover some of the company’s debts; the most interesting one, scheduled for about three months, will offer the developers’ intellectual property; whoever snaffles that could well get behind a Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning sequel or MMO Copernicus.

    Copernicus, wasn’t that described as “not fun to play”? I imagine EA will be all over that shit.

    I would like to see a Amalur sequel, but scrap the MMO idea, and improve the gameplay to feel less like it’s a single player MMO.

    @1 LOL!!! I was just gonna comment on Copernicus. I bet it could be made “fun to play” if the right group snags it up, but you’re most likely right the all seeing all consuming all f**K everything up beast known as Electronic Arts will most probably be the one.

    #2 agree i did like a lot amalaur it did a lot of things good, while doing some bads, if they can work in the bad aspects the game will be epic, i hope some capable developer will pick the rights up in order to make the next iteration.
