Why Schilling didn't tell his staff about 38 Studios' demise
"It wasn’t that I didn’t want to tell anyone…it’s I didn’t know what to say."
Former 38 Studios head Curt Schilling explains why he never told his staff about the studio's impending downfall
in a new feature from Boston Magazine
Schilling says that with the mounting financial troubles and increasing political pressure, things at 38 Studios were moving so quickly that he didn't know what to tell the rest of the company until it was too late. As a result, most employees were left completely in the dark until they lost their jobs altogether.
On top of that, Schilling's says his history as a baseball player trained him to never admit defeat until everything's really over -- right until the studio went under, he was confident that he could still set everything right.
"I believed with every ounce of my being that everything was going to work itself out," he says.
