Origin founder Richard Garriott has released his spiritual sucessor to Ultima, Shroud of the Avatar. The game is an MMO RPG set in New Britannia. It features flexible character customization and an extensive embedded storyline. The concept first launched on Kickstarter back in 2013 with prework that dates back even a couple years further. It's been in a state of playable beta for about four years, but today transitioned to fully released game. Backers that participated in the crowdfunding campaign should receive any physical items they are due soon. There's also a free trial for anyone who just wants to check it out. Congrats to the Portalarium team on achieving this huge milestone!

OUT NOW! Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues is a multiplayer fantasy RPG and the spiritual successor to Richard Garriott’s wildly successful Ultima and Ultima Online games.

Hey, that's cool, even if Ultima itself or anything associated with it doesn't really interest me personally. I remember seeing Starr Long's name mentioned in WC credits too - anyone remember what his role there was?
Starr Long was in QA/playtesting for Academy, Armada and Privateer. He has a bio in the Armada Playtesters' Guide.
