PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee says former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling has laid off some employees at his troubled video gaming company.
The 38 Studios founder met with Chafee and the state’s economic development agency on Monday night. Chafee said last week the company had asked the board for assistance to help stay afloat. The board took no action Monday.
Schilling said there is a lot of misinformation circulating but declined to comment further.
38 Studios moved to Rhode Island from Massachusetts in 2010 after the state offered a $75 million loan guarantee that officials said would mean new jobs and tax revenue.
The company was late on a $1.1 million payment to the EDC and told officials it would not be able to make payroll last week.
