38 Studios Assets handed to Rhode Island, IP expected to go up for sale

38 Studios and Big Huge Games

Although the alternative is the State of Rhode Island creating its own video game from the Amalur or Copernicus IP’s, which doesn’t seem likely. Yes, Rhode Island – trustees in the bankruptcy scandal that brought 38 Studios and Big Huge Games crashing down, have just been awarded the rights to the intellectual property (and physical property, including chairs and tables) from the companies to whom they loaned $75 million. Presumably, Rhode Island will now attempt to sell the IP to recover some of the money they invested, which could very well mean EA picking it up again – or perhaps a different company entirely.

what a shame this has happened, i know the baseball superstar meant well but really? he should be nailed to the wall for stuffing around with a gaming business he knows nothing about, even though he funded the whole thing himself. You my friend are the douche bag of the year
