38 Studios news, sort of. The Verge reports on the first of three auctions designed to sell off assets of the shuttered development firm, which took place earlier this week in Timonium, Maryland.
Why Maryland? Because up for bid were a bunch of items from former Maryland-based 38 subsidiary Big Huge Games. The highest-value item was an animation suit that fetched $9,500. The second auction is scheduled for next Tuesday at 38's former offices in Rhode Island. The third auction, which will feature the firm's intellectual property, will take place in approximately three months.
