"No ones done what we were doing."

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning looked like it had it all, but when it came to the final result it just… well, it just wasn’t very fun, and as a result the game sold poorly, and as a result the whole studio collapsed.
The rights to the Amalur franchise go up for auction in December, and Curt Schilling, the founder of developers 38 Studios, reckons that it’s worth at least a billion dollars.
“If someone were to buy Amalur, put team back on it, it’s a billion dollar franchise,” said Schilling on Twitter. “2 years later and still no ones done what we were doing.”
Multiple “well-known” studios are said to be interested in purchasing the rights to Amalur and other 38 Studios properties, though no names have been disclosed. The auction will be concluded on December 4, with profits going to the State of Rhode Island, who took ownership of the IP when 38 Studios defaulted on several loans.
