According to Bob Bates, many assets were sold to GT Interactive, now owned by Atari. I'd say their interests in reselling those games are near zero. So whoever wants to tackle this must first get the rights from them.

The second part is worse: all the original licenses have expired (Gateway, Shannara, Death Gate, Callahan's, etc) so the interested party should reacquire those as well. And original IPs from Legend were never sound hits, perhaps with the exception of Spellcasting.

This comes from an exchange I had with Bates. He's tried to get them alright but it's too much of a hassle.
