Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning launched just last week, but it appears plans are already in place for a sequel. In an interview on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night (embedded below), 38 Studios founder Curt Schilling revealed that a follow-up to the action role-playing game is happening.

More Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is in the pipeline, according to Schilling.

Fallon remarked, "I bet there's gonna be a sequel," to which Schilling responded, "Oh yeah."

Schilling went on to say, "[38 Studios] was built to be something that stays around and becomes huge."

In addition to Reckoning, 38 Studios is at work on a massively multiplayer online game currently codenamed Project Copernicus.

Reckoning won praise from reviewers upon launch last week for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, but no mention has been made as to whether or not the game will become a franchise.

As of press time, neither Electronic Arts nor Schilling had responded to GameSpot's request for comment.
