Schilling Leaving Red Sox to Focus on 38 Studios Game, Code-Named Copernicus

Updated Fri, Apr 25, 2008 by Aelryn

Goodbye baseball, hello raiding!

CNN reports that Curt Schilling of 38 Studios will be leaving the Red Sox next season to focus exclusively on his MMOG currently in development.

Curt Schilling, the split-finger fastballer from Boston with a penchant for honoring superstitions, playing through pain, and winning, says he intends to play only one more year of baseball. "I'm done. This is my final year," Schilling told a handful of journalists he'd invited to his top-floor suite in Caesar's Palace during this week's CES trade show.

His new focus, post-pitching, will be to oversee the development of a still-unnamed and shrouded-in-mystery massively multiplayer role-playing game (MMORPG) that goes by the working title Copernicus.
