Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning was developed by Big Huge Games and 38 Studios and released for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 in 2012. Reckoning was created as part of the work for the MMORPG known as Project Copernicus, featuring a setting and history designed by author R. A. Salvatore. The MMORPG was cancelled when 38 Studios declared bankruptcy in May 2012, with THQ Nordic acquiring the IP in 2018. Those looking to read more about the game can check out Michael A.
