The Rise and Fall of 38 Studios and the 75 Million Dollar Mystery (Part 2)

Gaming Dead: "The acquisition by 38 Studios of Big Huge Games from production studio and developer THQ, whose Rise of Nations (a real-time strategy game similar to the Age of Empires series by Ensemble Studios), proved a positive strategy for the company. Development for their killer app began in 2009, as Big Huge Games had already been developing another RPG, which they subsequently absorbed to fit the Kingdoms of Amalur mythos in order to create a larger, more impactful title."
