Kingdom of Amalur was developed by 38 Studios and published under EA. The game launched just at the end of the last generation in 2012 and was released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It, unfortunately, didn’t manage to find success leading to the closure of the studio among other things.
The announcement was made through a press release that confirmed that THQ Nordic now owns the IP from 38 Studios.

Kingdom of Amalur was hyped a lot back then before it launched to lackluster sales. The game was headed by Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion lead designer Ken Rolston and also featured the talents of New York Times bestselling author R.A. Salvatore and Spawn creator Todd McFarlane. It is currently available to download now on Steam for PC.
This gives THQ Nordic another new IP to add to their already growing collection. They also recently acquired the Timesplitters series and have worked on bringing back other classic IPs like the Darksiders series, which is getting a new third game set to launch later this year.
