A series of social network posts reveals that 38 Studios has shuttered Big Huge Games, creators of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
Man, that really sucks. Amalur is such an excellent game and they're such a talented studio, I just wish more people had jumped in to play it.
Can kiss that MMO goodbye. Wonder what will happen to the remaining balance on that loan they owe the state of Rhode Island?
They deserve another chance KOA sold 1.2 million copies...
Its a shame that they closed to be sure, but 1.2 million copies isn't exactly enough to even cover the costs of making the game. People always ask for new and interesting IP's and when we get them, they go unsold. Hope those guys all find work at other studios.
im curious to know how many units they had to sell to become profitable? 2 mil? 2.5? that is rather optimistic for a new company with their first game. also launching anywhere near skyrim was suicide. rip 38 studios.
Well, that well and truly sucks as KoA was great. It deserved more attention. I still think that people were to busy with Skyrim to give it a chance.
