38 Studios fails to pay employees, Rhode Island

Things are looking decidedly grim for 38 Studios, after it was revealed earlier this week that the Rhode Island developer was in some financial difficulty (to put it politely).

Earlier today, it was reported that the studio was "robbing Peter to pay Paul", by paying back a $1.125M debt to the state, using money it had saved by not paying employees - but that cheque later bounced.

Well, I don't see them recovering. They aren't Glasgow Rangers.

This is a huge shame as KoA was fantastic. I wish more people bought it but it seemed they were too busy with Skyrim to notice.

All that promise gone.

And I hope the employees get their pay.

i agree. I love the game. I was hoping they would b around awhile. To b honest most was spent on mmo. Might as well finish it, try to get $ and then go f2p if need b. Only possible way.

Shouldn't have held back the Steam release for temporary Origin exclusivity. Could have been taking Steam pre-orders for months.

That's more EAs fault than 38.

I hope they work everything out. KoA: Reckoning is a great game and a sequel would have been amazing. It would be a shame to see this franchise go to waste.

Hard to believe it had such a low worldwide sales figure. Whenever I read articles about this game, they are nearly always praiseworthy and having beaten the game and both DLC - twice - its easy to understand why.

For me, its a gem of a game that truly deserves a sequel . For that reason and the job security of the company's staff, I sincerely hope some financial solution can be found.
