Court-appointed receiver, attorney Richard Land, explains that things haven’t gone smoothly:
The process is taking longer than we anticipated for a variety of reasons including the complexity of the game itself. We have engaged an auctioneer and they are developing an Internet marketplace – or website – to market the game.
That website will go live sometime later this month, and Land comments that there has “already been interest” in the IP, but refuses to speculate on prices. He points out that while “the artwork is current, the tech used to develop the artwork is current, the concept is a current concept”, whoever buys the game may not choose to use it to complete the in-progress MMO.
Rhode Island state police is still investigating whether criminal charges will be filed in connection to the 38 Studios deal.
