    Well someone definitely has to buy it, but it all probably depends big time on next 2 things: 1 - How finished the project is? I don't think anyone would want to take something with barely graphics design and few locations finished, game needs to be playable and it should impress. 2 - Would they be willing to hire most important original developers to actually finish the game like it was supposed to? If they would hire same devs then it could probably even be really good for the game overall, since ppl tend to work better at new jobs. You know, to make a better impression. Either way, I'm pretty much in love with Copernicus overall looks and design and would be very glad to see that this game is going to live on. As an mmo, preferably, I don't want another Kingdoms of Amalur that I could never get into.

    I feel like EA wouldn't want to publish Copernicus. Currently, EA strikes me as the type of publisher that would only consider backing an MMORPG based on a very well-known IP, or an MMORPG offering an original, fresh setting. The same goes for Ubisoft, who would probably rather get their feet wet in the MMO market with an established IP. As for Square Enix, I can't really argue against them possibly publishing the game...I just feel that it wouldn't be the 'style' of MMO that they'd publish. The same goes for Namco Bandai. And I think Trion Worlds definitely has more confidence in the longevity of their MMO than Lucas does. Because of that, don't think they'll want to publish a traditional fantasy MMORPG for many more years to come. Of all the publishers Lucas made a case for, I can envision SOE or Perfect World picking up Copernicus--more so SOE; which would be kinda fitting since Curt Schilling adored the original Everquest. The graphical style of Copernicus is too cartoony for my taste, but I could see myself getting over that fact if the gameplay was great. Afterall, vanilla WoW had me hooked for years.

    cartoony? and that is a bad thing? last time i checked the most notable and best selling MMORPG is frickin cartoony - world of warcraft! I remember all the hype behind reckoning in how it was considered a great game and the fact that the two companies had to ask the state of rhode island for a loan just to kick it off says they had dedication. Any other company should see this as a gold mine if put to good use with the right original features and addicting gameplay.

    ugghh. i HATED the graphical styling of reckoning, but they've managed to actually make it worse. not that i'd ever play an mmo...and not that i'd ever play another amalur game after reckoning. what a heap of shit that game was.

    Correct, I didn't get all the hype at all! It looked 5 years out of date, you were boxed into channels, bows were badly implemented, there were limited enemies, your guy just stood staring off into space during cut scenes, you couldn't jump, terrible. However I feel sorry for all those who lost their jobs.

    Didn't Namco Bandai publish Witcher 2.

    Did you forget that MS can also be a Publisher just like Sony be it that they both will make it thier console exclusive.
  • Agggh - May 25, 2012 5:44 p.m.

    Will those companies actually be able to pick it up? Isn't the state of RI getting the Amalur IP?

    I have to say, I wasn't expecting the game to look like it does. I was expecting it to look like... Reckoning. But for some reason they went with an all-out cartoon look that's kind of... weird after having an established style in the first game. Personally, I LOVED the look of Reckoning and it's weird to see it become cartoony. I'd want 2K to publish this because they're my favorite publisher. And, also, I'd like some actual info. All they have to do is tell me it plays like Reckoning and I'm sold.
