Report: 38 Studios no longer paying workers, could close by weekend


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (FOX 25 / – Curt Schilling's video game company could be out of business by the weekend.

Popular gaming website is reporting that workers at 38 Studios haven't gotten a pay check since May 1 and their health insurance runs out Thursday.
When asked if the company will be able to stay open through the weekend, a source told the site the outlook isn't good.
Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee says that the company hasn't received any of the additional state aid it has requested.
