38 Studios Considers RI Move

38 Studios, the video game company founded by former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling, is considering moving its Maynard, MA, headquarters to Rhode Island, the Associated Press reported. The company is set to meet on Thursday with the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation, to discuss a proposal offering up to $75 million in loan guarantees to 38 Studios if it moves its operations to the state. Schilling has previously called for Massachusetts to offer greater financial incentives, such as tax credits, grants, and subsidized office space, to better attract and keep video game companies in the Bay State. 38 Studios CEO Jennifer MacLean couldn’t be reached when I published this news brief, but I’ll update the story if I hear back from her.
