For a rather small but enthusiastic fan community, this RPG was a highlight, the developer lost his existence. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning gets a remaster according to a leak.
The role-playing game Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning actually had good conditions to become a successful video game for the 2012 release. With artist Todd McFarlane (Spawn), ordering author R. A. Salvatore (Forgotten Realms) and lead designer Ken Rolston (The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion), the game had a lot of expertise on its side.
Developer 38 studios failed to remain solvent despite millions in government aid and the moderate success of Kingdoms of Amalur was not enough to keep the studio running, 38 studios went bankrupt and so there was no planned MMO in the same universe. Much of the debt went to American taxpayers. They are just as bad as the unpaid studio staff.
The game itself was nevertheless very well received by many role-playing fans and they will surely be pleased that a remaster for the game is planned. A Microsoft Store product page reveals the THQ Nordic, the publisher later bought the IP, wants to launch the game again as Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning, and it does on August 18, 2020.
