38 Studios will pay part of the money owed to employees after bankruptcy

38 Studios, the software house of former baseball player Curt Schilling, to whom we owe Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, will finally pay part of the due to its employees, after the sudden bankruptcy of 2012 due to the bad management of the company. Unfortunately it will only give between 14 and 20% of what it should, but at least it's something.

The story of 38 Studios is particularly dramatic and is told in detail in Press Reset, the latest book by Jason Schreier, with direct testimonies of those who lived it. For example, the fact that Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning was a failure is denied, because the truth is that it did very well in terms of sales, exceeding one million copies. They simply failed to cover the crazy expenses of Schilling and his people in the management of the MMORPG Kingdoms of Amalur, which blew up the entire study, thanks also to the hand of politics, which built a case around us due to a loan made by the state of Rhode Island.

Employees are now starting to receive the latest 38 Studios checks, as sanctioned by the Delaware court last June. Unfortunately, some have received them at the wrong addresses, as they have moved several times over the years. Hopefully they managed to get them back somehow.

Meanwhile Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning has been remastered to become Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning. Who knows if the franchise has a future at this point.
