The fall of 38 Studios and Big Huge Games last week left a lot of casualties—and now we know that another of those casualties could be the sequel to Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
According to Joystiq, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning 2 was in pre-production at Big Huge Games when the fallout happened. All of the materials for the game—intellectual property, tech, and codebase—still belong to 38 Studios as of this moment, but that ownership is set to go to the Rhode Island state government upon the studio defaulting.
Joystiq’s sources say that “elements tested for the sequel were higher graphics quality across the board, no loading screens between zones, expanded and improved combat animations, fewer branching quests and greater effect on the world by players.”
“We had a good base to work from, and it was going to be all about improving everything,” a source who asked to remain anonymous told the website. “We listened carefully to fans and critics and were going to implement everything we possibly could.”
