The Daily Grind: Would you want to see Project Copernicus finished and released?

    
27

Last week, THQ Nordic raised eyebrows when it announced the truly awful name for its rerelease of one of the titles it bought from 38 Studios’ shipwreck: Kingdoms of Amalur Rereckoning. Groan, yes, but we’re not sorry to see the game salvaged since it had a pretty good reputation. The game, of course – not the studio, which was responsible for one of the biggest scandals our genre has ever seen.

MMO fans will recall that THQ actually picked up the whole Amalur IP last fall, not just the single-player RPG – meaning it now owns the remains of MMORPG Project Copernicus too. We have absolutely no reason to think that THQ is going to do anything with it, mind you. In fact, I assume the company has no interest in putting out an MMO at all, even one that cost pennies on the dollar, even one that was supposedly in decent condition for polishing off.

But damn I would not be sad if they did. How about you? Would you want to see Project Copernicus finished and released?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

Most definitely. There was a lot of potential there. Bring back the time when we had MMO release after MMO release. At least I could play something new and interesting then, rather than the void we have now.

Certainly. It sounded like it had some promise and despite the shadiness of management and such it sounded like whatshisface really was passionate about it.

And let’s be honest, the MMO scene is kind of becoming a desert after the boom and crash of the early 2010’s so it’d be nice to have one more MMO to check out.

I enjoyed the single player game so I’d be happy to have the MMO see the light of day.

Maybe? From what I remember (according to Steam it’s been 6 years since I played KoA and its DLCs) I really enjoyed the visuals and combat, and found the worldbuilding (which I was rather wary of given how utterly awful I find Salvatore’s novels) okay with a few genuinely interesting bits. So there’s a solid foundation there, but it’d all depend on what sort of MMO systems were built on top of that.

Project Schillingus…

…knowing more about the original person behind the project is making me tempted to say I am glad it never came out. So no. >.<

Not really…I was really looking forward to Kingdoms and it was a huge disappointment…it just felt like a single player (uninspired) MMO.
