Report: Curt Schilling’s Video Game Company Could Move From Massachusetts to Rhode Island

by

Curt Schilling has three World Series rings, six All-Star selections, 216 career wins, 3,116 career strikeouts and now one video game.

But according to The Boston Globe, Massachusetts is in jeopardy of losing Curt Schilling?s video game company, 38 Studios LLC, as the former Red Sox hurler explores other options.

Schilling unveiled his company?s first game — called Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning — at the Comic-Con entertainment convention in San Diego on Thursday. Now he?s negotiating with economic development officials in Rhode Island about the prospect of moving the company.

Schilling?s company reportedly could leave Maynard, Mass., and head for Rhode Island, which could potentially provide him with a $75 million loan guarantee. The move would bring along about 80 jobs.

According to the Boston Globe, Massachusetts economic development officials would like to keep the company in the state, but it does not have the type of loan guarantee program that Rhode Island does.

Schilling?s company reportedly has about 170 employees and expects to hire an additional 350 workers within the next few years.
