The unfortunate demise of 38 Studios
resulted in the end of the very ambitious project known as Copernicus
that had a lot of big names tied to it such as best-selling fantasy author R.A. Salvatore, Spawn
creator Todd McFarlane and Ken Rolston of The Elder Scrolls
fame. It's been a sad story of personal tragedy
and loss for many involved
. And while its unclear what will become of Copernicus
if another studio picks up the title, Kotaku recently received a new video that offers a glimpse of what might have been if 38 Studios had not come to an unfortunate end.
According to Kotakus report, the video was sent by someone that felt the hard work of 38 Studios and Big Huge Games should be celebrated. Kotaku also notes that the video was intended to be used to reveal the project to the world. Head over and give it a look.

Update: Former 38 Studios Creative Director Steve Danuser recently posted a response about the leaked video to clarify that the content was a work in progress and explain a little more about what was presented.
