Schilling’s 38 Studios may get more aid from R.I.

Beleaguered game developer makes $1.1m payment

Rhode Island, which has provided $75 million to former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling’s troubled video game firm, may be on the hook for millions more in subsidies to the company, Governor Lincoln Chafee revealed Friday.

Schilling’s firm, 38 Studios LLC, has qualified for state tax credits available to film companies and video game makers, and, Chafee said, Rhode Island may have no choice but to pay them, no matter how shaky the venture’s outlook seems. So far 38 Studios has qualified for $2.1 million in credits for 2011 and has applied for another $6.5 million that the state is now reviewing.
