The state of Rhode Island's last keepsake of 38 Studios
– beyond a $100-million-plus loan debt
– is the company's Amalur
intellectual property, which it's planning to sell off shortly. The Providence Journal
reports there is interest in the asset, but the lawyer in charge of the sale hasn't revealed a value.
Meanwhile, a hearing in the state's lawsuit against the architects of the 38 Studios loan
is scheduled for this Wednesday, after studio founder and former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling was unable to get the suit dismissed in March
The sale of the studio's physical assets net the state approximately $830,000
. Following the sale of the IP, Rhode Island tax payers will have to pay off the rest of the debt.
