EA Still Owns Right to Original Kingdoms of Amalur Game

THQ Nordic may own franchise rights, but they'll need EA's permission to make a remaster of the original.

Despite THQ Nordic announcing that they purchased the rights to the Kingdoms of Amalur franchise, it still seems that there are still some hurdles in regards to the ownership of the original Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning.

In an interview for Eurogamer, a representative told their writer that “EA still has the publishing rights to Reckoning,” meaning that they would need EA’s permission in order to make a remaster of the 2012 RPG. This is because they only have the rights to the series, not the original game.

“At this stage we ‘only’ acquired the intellectual property. Given our track record, we know what the burning questions (remaster, remake, port to current-gen systems etc.) are, but we decided to not answer those specifically as we tend to put our heads together first and then do our homework, and only start to talk about anything once we feel confident and very familiar with the franchise.”

THQ Nordic would not comment on any other information regarding there relationship with EA.
