Kingdoms of Amalur is to be sold by the State of Rhode Island as part of the ongoing case against 38 Studios and owner Curt Schilling. Lawyers close to the sale have confirmed that the IP has drawn the interest of unnamed parties.
The Providence Journal reports that the sale will help repay some of the $130 million owed to the state by 38 Studios.
Speaking to the site about the sale, Providence-based lawyer Richard J. Land said, “Who knows what the value ultimately will be. But there is interest in the assets,” suggesting a game publisher or studio has already approached those handling the sale regarding a purchase.
The site adds that the Kingom of Amalur brand, together with ‘drawings, designs’ and other related work are the troubled studio’s most-valuable assets.
Court hearings will begin on Wednesday. We may know more about any potential buyers then.
