    So what does the future hold for 38 Studios?

    Outlook not so good....

    38 Studios was unable to make payroll this week, but is in the process of making the $1.125 million payment that set off the company's crisis earlier this week. WPRI reports that a spokesperson for the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation (RIEDC) did confirm that former Red Sox player Curt Schilling's video game company was unable to pay its employees.

    A source tells Joystiq that beyond not making payroll, all temps and contractors at 38 Studios were let go this week.
    38 Studios doesn't make payroll, can't pay state either [update] | Joystiq

    I'm willing to bet you won't see a Kingdoms 2, and this doesn't bode well for the MMO either.

    This is surprising seeing that Kingdoms turned out to be very good.

    Doesn't look good. If they file for bankruptcy, we will be paying for a much more expensive game then when it first came out; wither the game was bought or not :-(

    Latest /100%: Saint Rows 4
    Next Platinum/100% Goal: FF 14 (going to a LONG haul...)

    Worst part is that 38 Studios did a lot of hiring from my college (I'm a Game Design major)... there will be a lot of recent grads who may never even get to start their new job
    Hey. Hey. Look. Look at me. I'm playing video games.
