Kingdoms of Amalur goes unsold at auction
38 Studios auction fails to sell the bigger items
Following the 38 Studios auction, Rise of Nations and Rise of Legends have found new owners but other big items went unsold.
The company handling the auction was unable to find a buyer for the MMO Project Copernicus, or the sequel and merchandising rights to Kingdoms of Amalur, as they did not receive any acceptable offers for the IP and assets. Helios, the company's social gaming platform, also failed to find a buyer.
Rights to the Rise of Nations and Rise of Legends franchises were sold however. The Big Huge Games trademark also found a buyer - Big Huge was a subsidiary of 38 Studios. The identities of the five parties that participated were not revealed.
In total, the auction raised $320,000, and the company will continue to engage in negotiations with interested parties to sell the remaining assets.
