The rights to Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and Rise of Nations will go up for auction on Nov. 14 and 15, GamesIndustry International reports. The former properties of 38 Studios and Big Huge Games will be sold off more than a year after the studio went bankrupt, taking millions of dollars in Rhode Island state loan guarantees with it.
The rights to Project Copernicus, an unreleased fantasy MMO in the Amalur universe, are up for grabs along with Reckoning. The "Big Huge Games Engine" and 38 Studios' own development platform will also go to the highest bidders.
Reckoning sold reasonably well, so the pre-built fantasy universe may be attractive to other developers--especially with Copernicus' ample assets sitting unused.
