38 Studios R.I. Move Confirmed

38 Studios, the Maynard, MA-based video game company started by former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling, has confirmed that it will be moving its headquarters to Rhode Island, according to a report in the Boston Globe. The gaming company attracted a $75 million loan guarantee from the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation, and has said it will bring 450 direct jobs to the state by the end of 2012. We reported earlier in July that 38 Studios was considering the move, news that came a few months after Schilling urged the state of Massachusetts to offer more financial support to the video game industry. 38 Studios also made headlines late last week with the unveiling of its first video game product: a single-player game entitled “Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.”
