Schilling Talks Rhode Island Relocation, His Aversion to F2P

March 3, 2011 -

Speaking to Joystiq, former Red Sox pitcher and current CEO of 38 Studios Curt Schilling talked a bit about his company's growth over the last year and his decision to move his studio from Massachusetts to Rhode Island. Schilling said that the company's 150 - 160 employees are already in the process of moving to the brand new facility in Rhode Island.

"The team is incredibly excited. It's our building! We have all six floors -- it's our studio and we're alone. It's our space," Schilling told Joystiq at an EA GDC event. "Gavin -- the studio GM -- and I, we really took a Disney approach. There's no detail too small for us in the new studio to make it a place where people walk in and say, 'I wanna work there.'"

On the progress of the company's first game he said: "If it were a baseball game, we'd be in the fifth inning maybe?" he said, adding that more information about both Reckoning and the unannounced MMO would be revealed in the coming months.

As for his MMO going free to play at some point, Schilling said: "We have an open mind about everything, except the game," Schilling told us, adding, "We look at what we're creating and we say, 'What is the best possible guest experience we can create with this product?' And that'll answer your business model questions and your goals and objectives for the game."

One thing he didn't talk about was all the political fallout from the sweet tax deal he got from the state that served as 2010 election year fodder for several candidates in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
