The downfall of 38 studios the company that brought us Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning has been one of the most tragic events in this gaming generations recent history. The studios founder former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling recently shared his thoughts about the whole event in a radio interview with WEEI (via the Boston Globe). “The money I saved and earned playing baseball was probably all gone…life is going to be different” Schilling elaborating on the “tapped out” statement. Schilling was able to tell his family last month and had planned to give the employees some sort of heads up before the company filed chapter 7, he says “I bombed that one in epic fashion…the employees really got blindsided. They have every right to be upset.”

Schilling will now be on the hook for $12 million a year for the next eight years in order to pay off the debt accumulated by the company. The company had been in talks to make a Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning sequel to the sound of $35 million but claims statements made by Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee caused the deal to fall through. Schilling felt sympathetic towards the former employees and wishes them the best.
