38 Studios wants Amalur to be a major franchise

Speaking on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, 38 Studios bigwig Curt Schilling expressed definite desire to turn the recently launched Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning into a full-blown franchise, which would of course include a sequel for the RPG and who knows what else.

The studio “was built to be something that stays around and becomes huge,” Schilling told Fallon, comparing the created world to the likes of The Lord of the Rings on a few occasions.

The franchise’s future may well hinge on the success of Reckoning though, as it’s been said previously. There are no concrete sales numbers yet, but the title’s #1 UK debut could be telling which way things will go.

Reckoning was 38’s first release. It’s currently working on an MMO, codenamed Copernicus. It’s been a long time since we’ve heard anything on that one though.
