Curt Schilling's Unfinished MMO Goes Up For Auction

Initial bidders are being vetted for the remnants of the Kingdoms of Amalur MMO, Project Copernicus, that was in production when Curt Schilling's 38 Studios went under. The state of Rhode Island will sell the property to the highest bidder in November as part of its continuing efforts to dig itself out of the $US90 million hole it dug financing the failed developer.

    Interesting. I'm predicting a No Sale. Much of what makes a game usable is its dev team. Trying to sift through other peoples' code can be a nightmare and sometimes even less productive than starting from scratch. The assets might be worth something, but I doubt we'll see most of it - certainly not in the original form intended.

    Shame...
    All the leaked post-collapse interviews, art, and videos seem to indicate that this thing was damn near done according to some, with some pretty interesting optimization/tech and gorgeous art, but it also looked depressingly like a WoW clone.
