38 Studios’ Sell-Off So Far Amounts To An $830,000 Drop In The Bucket

This auctioning of assets belonging to 38 Studios, the makers of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, brought in a combined $US830,000, reports Joystiq. Sounds… good? Well, according to the Associated Press, that will barely dent the $US100 million US taxpayers may eat in Rhode Island, which guaranteed the loan for which someone gave themselves this award (courtesy of ex-38er Rich Gallup)

Now, that was for physical assets sold off this week (and last week at 38-owned Big Huge Games in Maryland). The court-appointed official also told Joystiq that the sale of the studio’s intellectual property, which includes works in progress such as a grandiose, free-to-play Kingdoms of Amalur MMO, will be sold off over the next three to six months. What that brings in, who knows, but Rhode Island is almost certainly looking at a loss here.
