Kingdoms of Amalur remaster coming in August, listing suggests

Kingdoms of Amalur remaster called Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning (eww) is heading to current-gen platforms in August, a listing on the Microsoft Store suggests.

“The hit RPG returns! From the minds of the bestselling author R.A. Salvatore, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion lead designer Ken Rolston, comes Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning,” the listing reads. “Remastered with stunning visuals and refined gameplay Re-Reckoning delivers intense, customizable RPG combat inside a sprawling game world.”

The original Kingdoms of Amalur was released back in 2012 by Big Huge Games, 38 Studios and EA; we previewed it here and reviewed it here. In 2018, THQ Nordic purchased the Amalur IP, but a week later it was also confirmed that EA retained rights to Kingdoms of Amalur itself. With the publisher of Re-Reckoning listed as THQ Nordic, something has obviously changed.

Screenshots from the listing are below.

The Xbox One listing has an 11 August release date attached to it, and whilst unconfirmed, we’d expect those on PS4 and PC (maybe even Switch?) can expect the game at the same time. Kaiko is listed as the game’s developer.

We’ve asked THQ Nordic for more information about Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning and will update this post as we learn more.

Update: “Yes, it’s true and accurate,” a THQ Nordic representative has confirmed with Stevivor.

“The news was not supposed to go out yet, which can be summarised as ‘oopsy daisy’ on our end. We hope people are still looking forward to playing Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning in [the European] Summer.”
