Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Studio Closing

38 Studios, Curt Schilling’s game studio & producer of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, shut its doors effective immediately today.  Even after moving over 300,000 units the first month of release & talk of an MMO, looks like they weren’t able to pay back the $75 million they owed the state of Rhode Island.  (Who knew states got into the funding video games business?)

While this means that there’s probably no plans for any KoA:R DLC on the way, but maybe I can find a cheap copy of it soon.  The demo was actually really fun, especially if you like smashing boxes over & over. WHICH I DO.

Poor Curt Schilling, though in the end I guess poor Rhode Island.  That crummy state* just can’t catch a break.

*I don’t know anything about Rhode Island.  It’s most likely very lovely.
