38 Studios closes doors, goodnight sweet prince

The gaming industry claims another victim as Curt Schilling’s 38 Studios closes their doors. Reports are coming in that Schilling has laid off the entire studio staff working on Project Copernicus and the folks at Big Huge. We’ve been hearing for weeks now about the studios financial woes, but it seems the studio won’t be able to pull out an eleventh hour victory. Best of luck to all of those affected, and thanks for a fantastic game. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning may have had its share of problems but was a great start to what looked to be a promising franchise. I guess it just didn’t hit the sales it needed for the studio to survive.
