Sony Online Entertainment was pitched the 38 Studios MMO 'Copernicus', as John Smedley hailed it as "gorgeous," with its quality "undeniable." Unfortunately it was just "too expensive is all."
Smedley points the finger of blame surrounding 38 Studios' collapse towards "that idiot Governor Chafee" of Rhode Island, and even remarks the loan should never of happened.
The 38 Studios auction that was held last week at Heritage Global Partners managed to claw $320,000 in proceeds, and that's thanks to Rise of Nations, Rise of Legends and Big Huge Games.
What didn't amount to anything was RPG IP Kingdoms of Amalur or its MMO counterpart Project Copernicus. There were no "acceptable offers" put forward during the auction.
Curt Shilling has tweeted his support of the Amalur IP universe calling it a "billion dollar franchise," and implores anyone who buys it through the December auction to "put team back on it" and continue the journey.
He also remarked that years after its release "still no ones done what we were doing". Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning scored high among critics despite a few rough edges.
The auction taking place early next month for 38 Studios' Kingdoms of Amalur and MMO Copernicus has attracted about two dozen interested parties. Among them are "well-known industry figures".
