38 Studios auction shifted to December

New, 7 comments

Pending court approval, 38 Studios online liquidation auction originally scheduled in September for Nov. 14-15, has been postponed until next month, executive vice president of auction organizer Heritage Global Partners, Nick Jimenez told GameSpot.

The lawyer appointed to sell the possessions of Curt Schilling's video game company, Richard J. Land, had requested permission to hold off the sale for a few weeks from a Rhode Island Superior Court judge last week. At the time, Land told The Journal that he wanted to delay the auction because interest from potential bidders exceeded expectations.

The auction will include 38 Studios and Big Huge Games properties, such as assets for Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and unreleased massively multiplayer online role-playing game named Project Copernicus, along with IP rights to Big Huge Games franchises and more. In June of last year, Rhode Island officials valued 38 Studios' assets in the "tens of millions" of dollars.
