The word is that 38 Studios is looking for an additional $50 to $100 million dollars for their first massively multiplayer online role playing game code named Copernicus. Wow $100 million more? It just blows the mind sometimes to see how much it takes to develop a new MMORPG in terms of cost alone. Copernicus is looking for the new funding in anticipation of a 2010 (or 2011) launch date and has famous baseball player Kurt Schilling again. Right now the game is simply in the concept stage.
