I'd buy it, if I had the money.

I guess many publishers felt the franchise wouldn't bring in any real type of profit

I'm guessing they expected a unreal amount of money, so that's why it didn't sell. I'd like to see KoA being improved with a sequel.

KoA broke even and made them money. Only problem was that they used the money they made on the failed mom.

@rdgneoz3:

Did she spend all of her time drinking, and ignoring her children?

The State of Rhode Island is still in over $100million in debt due to the loans they gave to 38Studios.
I'm willing to bet they wanted to recoup most of their loss and were asking for way more than it would be worth to any potential investors.

I like the game alright, but it seriously felt like a single player World of Warcraft, at least early on. It got better later.

I think if a company were going to invest a lot of money into an MMO it would have to be from an established franchise that didn't have the sour taste of what happened with this game.

Otherwise, that money could just be used to create a whole new IP. MMO's are risky enough as it is.

Wonder how much they are asking for it...

Damn, that really, really sucks!
