Amalur Fails to Find Buyer in 38 Studios Auction, Rise of Nations and Legends Sold

Posted on December 13, 2013 AT 12:44pm

Sequel rights to Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning went untouched during the auction held this week for 38 Studios and Big Huge Games, while Rise of Nations and Rise of Legends managed to find buyers.

In addition to Amalur, 38 Studios’ in-development MMORPG Project Copernicus also went unsold, along with the Big Huge Games Engine and rights to Catan (based on the popular board game, Settlers of Catan).

Rise of Nations and Rise of Legends and their respective intellectual property rights, as well as the Big Huge Games trademark itself, were auctioned off for $320,000—though the buyer remains a mystery. Rhode Island is estimated to have inherited $100 million in debt because of 38 Studios’ bankruptcy, meaning the state will continue to push the sale of remaining assets and properties.
