EA would love to be a partner on a Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning sequel and hopes that one day it will happen, EA Labels president Frank Gibeau has told GameInformer magazine.

"I think it's unfortunate how everything worked out [for 38 Studios]," said Gibeau. "At the end of the day we saw a lot of creativity and vision in the team that Curt [Schilling] put together. We thought the game was terrific. It reviewed well.

"We built a good business there and hope there's a sequel to it someday. We'd love to be a partner for that."

Pre-production on a sequel was said to be under way prior to the collapse of 38 Studios.

The Kingdoms of Amalur IP remains in the possession of 38 Studios, though it's been rumoured that Big Huge Games may start again and create a spiritual sequel using the same ideas and themes that made Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning a 1.2 million unit success.

BHG did the same thing when purchased by 38 Studios from THQ, using its Ascendant RPG as the basis for Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.

... knowing that all the controversy, and people clamouring for the devs to be saved will all the fancries of 'KoA wasn't THAT bad - it builds a solid foundation, at least'... EA couldn't buy punlicity like that.

If EA really cared they would/should have moved in to bale them out while 38 Studios were still together. Right now I feel like they're just vultures flying in trying to rip the IP off them for cheap...
