Schilling Loan Shaved

September 8, 2010 -

Curt Schilling’s 38 Studios will have to make do with just a $51 million loan from Rhode Island’s Economic Development Corporation (EDC), as around one-third of the original loan amount of $75 million will be held aside for three years worth of repayments on the debt.

WPRI.com reported the news, citing a fact sheet issued by the EDC. After issuing the document, an EDC spokesperson indicated that the organization would no longer speak to reporters about the deal until it was finally closed.

While there was no mention of whether or not 38 Studios might eventually receive the $20 million or so being held aside, it was reported that, if approved, the deal would see 38 Studios receive $13 million right away, with another $38 million dispersed over the next 15 months, providing Schilling’s company meets certain goals and criteria.

Another “success fee” of between $15.3 and $18.8 million could be earned by 38 Studios, though no mention of terms and/or conditions were on the EDC fact sheet.

38 Studios also has until November 30th to find its new home, after which it must sign an enforceable 10-year lease.

The EDC loan helped lure Schilling and 38 Studios from their current Massachusetts home to neighboring Rhode Island and raised the ire of just about every politician in the Ocean State.

james_fudgeshouldn't that be marked as an editorial? There's a lot of opinion in it.11/24/2014 - 12:49pm
WonderkarpI try to direct gamergate away from the same old antagonists. The least talk about Quinn or Wu or Sarkeesian, the more they can talk about the real issues. Its why I've rarely ever mentioned them on my twitter, unless there's like a giant news development11/24/2014 - 12:46pm
Andrew EisenHoly Metamucil, that Blogjob article is STILL propagating the same Grayson/Quinn horse poop!11/24/2014 - 12:30pm
Andrew EisenWell, to be clear, no one manually added your name.11/24/2014 - 12:26pm
Andrew EisenOh, and I know Harper's Twitter handle but that isn't the name on the list you linked to nor was she ever mentioned by name. Hence my subsequent confusion. The name on the list was something like randi_ebooks. But yeah, that's still Harper. Same list.11/24/2014 - 12:25pm

Wonderkarpnah. I was miffed, but I got my apology. Now I think its hilarious that htey put me in that. I told my friend and cohost of my lets plays once I move, and she said she's gonna try to make the list XD. I told her "Just follow these people"11/24/2014 - 12:24pm
Andrew EisenHeh, looks like we confirmed it at the same time!11/24/2014 - 12:15pm
Andrew EisenYep, it was a pseudonym. By the by, there's an appeals process to be whitelisted if that's still a concern of yours.11/24/2014 - 12:15pm
WonderkarpI wasnt 100% certain so I confirmed it.11/24/2014 - 12:13pm
Wonderkarpyeah. Randi Harper is @FreeBSDGirl, Its her list.11/24/2014 - 12:09pm
Andrew EisenAre you sure? Because, again, I'm pretty sure it had a different name and author. Was it a pseudonym or something?11/24/2014 - 11:57am
Wonderkarpno, Randi Harper designed the list that IGDA used.11/24/2014 - 11:53am
Andrew EisenI was going to ask yesterday but isn't that a different list than the one IGDA has up a few days ago? Shout box doesn't go back that far but I'm pretty sure the list had a different name and author.11/24/2014 - 11:51am
