Former Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Curt Schilling may be retiring from baseball, but he won’t be idle. As the Boston Herald reports, the Red Sox retiree will have more time to focus on his video game start-up, 38 Studios.

The company, which the longtime gamer founded in 2006, is developing a fantasy MMORPG.

“This is my life after baseball,” Schilling told GameTap.com in an interview last year. “After baseball, I will do nothing except be a father, husband, and run this company.”

The venture also includes Todd McFarlane, creator of the Spawn comic book series and also a Valley resident, and fantasy author R.A. Salvatore, who has penned many of the D&D-related Forgotten Realms novels and the adaptation of Star Wars — Episode II: Attack of the Clones.
