Rise of Nations sold, no buyer for Project Copernicus


By on December 15, 2013 at 12:00 pm

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.

What… the reserve price at an auction was set too high?


Rise of nations was a great RTS game, I’d like to see more of them, though I’m not sure I’m as capable at keeping up with the same level as micro as when I played it.


In total, the auction brought in $320,000.

So 2-3 good days worth of star citizen non-special sale pledge income …


An updated rise of nations… rts bliss


rise of nations such a great game, make a modern remake of it or even a hd like aoeII would be fine, love it so many memories :D


No one wants to buy a single player wow-clone? Really? I’m surprised!
