THQ Nordic would require EA’s sign-off to release a remastered version of 38 Studios’ Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, according to the publisher.
“EA still has the publishing rights to Reckoning,” THQ Nordic said “About any other details about the relationship between EA and 38 Studios we can’t comment.”
“At this stage we ‘only’ acquired the intellectual property,” a THQ Nordic representative added. “Given our track record, we know what the burning questions (remaster, remake, port to current-gen systems etc.) are, but we decided do [sic] not answer those specifically as we tend to put our heads together first and then do our homework, and only start to talk about anything once we feel confident and very familiar with the franchise.”
THQ Nordic acquired the rights to the Kingdoms of Amalur IP and “other assets” from 38 Studios last week.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning was released in 2012 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
