EA contradicts itself by claiming interest in Reckoning 2 months after passing on it

7/15/12 1:20pm

During an interview with Game Informer, EA president Frank Gibeau was asked about Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning  and if the publisher would be interested in backing a sequel. Gibeau gave this simple answer, "We'd love to be a partner for that.”

But before any of you fans of the original begin to get your hopes too high, there’s a fairly large contradiction in this statement.

Soon after the interview, Game Informer asked an anonymous member of the game’s development team about the likelihood of a Reckoning sequel, he/she said it isn’t very likely because "[Electronic Arts] had first right of refusal and passed back in March." 

Did EA have a change of heart? Or did Gibeau simply forget about the previous decision? For fans of the series and for the members of the development team who have yet to find work after the Big Huge Games closure, I'm hoping  for the change of heart.
