38 Studios Makes Payment; Copernicus in June 2013?

Following word that 38 Studios' loan payment check bounced, Joystiq has word the studio has successfully made its required $1.125 million payment to Rhode Island. "It's time for them to go out and get private capital funding," Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee said. "That's the deal. It's a generous deal, but stick to it." Word is their next payment is $2.6 million due on November 1st. Joystiq also reports that Chafee offered the 38 Studios-related press conference offered what he believes is the release date for Project Copernicus, 38 Studios' upcoming MMORPG. "What I understand is Copernicus is June of '13," he said. Formal or not, as far as we know this is the first game release date of any sort announced by an elected official.

Yeah, but they're (the RI taxpayers) are still F'd in the A unless 38 can secure funding to not only pay off the 112 million (and interest is still accumulating) but finish this game as well. And who the hell is going to give them the 10's of millions they'll obviously need to finish it at this point? I'll be mighty surprised if anyone steps up to the plate for this. Personally, I wouldn't touch them with a 1,000,000 ft pole.

Tell ya what, I'll pay them if you can actually lift that million foot pole...
