THQ Nordic has officially announced that they have acquired the Kingdoms of Amalur intellectual property from the developers 38 Studios

This is very exciting news because it allows for THQ Nordic to work on this IP, release some sequel, or even bring the game to current generation consoles and remaster it. We’re looking forward to seeing what exactly THQ Nordic will do with this in the coming future, but it’s nice to see a more or less abandoned IP, getting some attention.
