This news comes after an official Xbox store listing came into light earlier today, alerting players to the impending announcement of Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning.
The developer is listed as Kaiko, who previously worked with THQ Nordic on Darksiders: Warmastered Edition and Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition.
Aside from the Xbox One store listing, no other console formats have been announced at the moment. The page also lists a release date of August 18, although no official date has been announced as of yet.
A Discord page has been opened by the team, which promises to bring information, updates and more as it comes.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning is a fantasy action-RPG that originally release back in 2012 for last-gen systems. Developed by 38 Studios, the game never received a sequel as the studio declared bankruptcy after missing loan payments and the rights were lost.
The Kingdoms of Amalur rights were purchased by THQ Nordic in 2018 during a time the studio began purchasing multiple game IPs, such as the cult-classic Timesplitters.
A few months after the rights were retrieved, the game was later made available on the Xbox One as part of the company’s backwards compatibility programme — a project which has brought forward hundreds of Xbox 360 games to the current console.
