According to Gamespot, Rhode Island has gained $713,000 from continuing sales of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, since the state acquired various assets from 38 Studios when the developer filed for bankruptcy last year.
The news comes from the state’s lawyer, Richard J. Land from Chace Ruttenberg & Freedman, LLP, who explained the figure references cumulative revenue from ongoing sales of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning made through Valve’s digital distribution platform Steam, not the physical copies of the game. Land also said that because Electronic Arts originally published the game, they still have the right to sell and earn revenue from the game.
The Providence Journal has also reported that the $713,000 is in addition to the $430,000 that was raised from left over computers, office furniture and more after 38 Studios filed for bankruptcy. Rhode Island acquired the Kingdoms of Amalur franchise and various assets in August, and recently announced their intention to sell those assets, and at the time Land said “there is interest” in them.
