Curt Schilling explains what went wrong with 38 Studios
In a radio interview with WEEI in Boston, 38 Studios head Curt Schilling said that after the recent failure of his company, "Life's going to be different."
Schilling, who started the studio six years ago, said he's personally invested more than $50 million in the company, but operating costs were still too high to see the now defunct project Copernicus through to completion.
“I put everything in my name in this company,” Schilling said, adding that he's not interested in sympathy. “I believed in it. I believed in what we built. I never took a penny in salary. I never took a penny for anything.”
Schilling admitted he could have done better, saying that he doesn't blame employees for the way they've reacted.
“The employees got blindsided,” he said. “They have every right to be upset. I always told everybody if something were going to happen, you‘re going to have a month or two of lead time, and I bombed on that one in epic fashion.”
