Vale, brave kni- oh hey, you're still here? Awkward.

Despite an auction conference call with multiple interested parties, the 38 Studios saga is yet to draw to a close. Project Copernicus, the nearly-complete Kingdoms of Amalur property, was not sold, as no acceptable offers were made.
Auctioneer Richard Land said he will continue negotiations, so there’s some hope the project will be salvaged yet. 38 Studios’ custom social media and gaming platform Helios was not sold, either.
Happily, the auction did find new homes for some things – the rights to the Big Huge Games name, for one (38 Studios bought up the developer a couple of years before it collapsed). The rights to Rise of Nations, Rise of Legends and various associated properties went, too. In total, the auction brought in $320,000.
