Former MLB pitcher and 38 Studios founder to sell home furnishings, including Kingdoms of Amalur items, this weekend; home itself up for sale at $3 million.
Former MLB pitcher and founder of failed game company 38 Studios Curt Schilling will hold an estate sale at his Medfield, Mass. home this weekend, according to CBS Boston.
The estate sale will be managed by Consign Works and features furniture, decor, and other various furnishing from his 7-bedroom, 8,000 square-foot home in eastern Massachusetts.
Regarding Kingdoms of Amalur, up for sale will be a 38 Studios drafting table and various posters related to the game. The estate sale takes place this Saturday, October 12, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
38 Studios went bankrupt in the summer of 2012, leaving Rhode Island on the hook for millions related to a $75 million loan that saw the company move from Massachusetts to Rhode Island in 2010. Schilling has said that he lost $50 million of his own money as part of the company's insolvency.
Schilling's home itself is also up for sale with an asking price of $3 million. The home is located on a private road and features 27 acres of land, a pool, sand volleyball court, ice skating rink, and putting green.
In addition, a 38 Studios liquidation auction will take place next month. Featured in the auction will be a number of intellectual property assets in the Amalur fantasy universe. These include the massively multiplayer game Project Copernicus, sequel rights to Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, and merchandise rights and revenue streams associated with the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
