EA Turned Down Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning Sequel

EA Turned Down Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning Sequel

Although EA Labels president Frank Gibeau told GameInformer Magazine that his company would love to be part of a Kingdoms of Amalur sequel, the site’s sources told it that EA’s telling a lie, as the publisher was given the opportunity to do just that but turned the offer down.

“I think it’s unfortunate how everything worked out [for 38 Studios],” Gibeau said in the GI Magazine interview. “At the end of the day we saw a lot of creativity and vision in the team that Curt [Schilling] put together. We thought the game was terrific. It reviewed well.”

But the reality is EA turned down the studio. In fact “[Electronic Arts] had first right of refusal and passed back in March,” said GI’s sources.

Sad truth.
