I don't know much about the 38 studios bankruptcy but generally speaking these proceeds and any other monies they get (such as for the sale of the studio and IP's going forward) will be held until it's decided how the creditors will be paid. In this case, the government will almost always be first so the state of RI will get all the money since they're owed so much and no one else that's owed money will get anything.
How does that work, by the way? EA gets paid for each copy sold, but they don't have to give 38 Studios a cut anymore, since 38 doesn't exist? If so that's a pretty sweet deal for EA.
