Another Game UO'll Never Play
Reports several days ago indicated turmoil at EA.Com -- this has now been confirmed: Origin has now cancelled Ultima Online 2 and Harry Potter, and laid off 85 employees -- including President Jack Heistand, the man who cancelled Privateer Online. They plan to focus on supporting UO!Live rather than attempting to compete with themselves -- something that they should have figured out a year ago. Best of luck to any former-Origin people reading this... you all created an impressive looking game, it just couldn't make up for EA being really dumb.
On a personal note: Don't brag about this, people -- it's not good news for us, and the Ultima Online fans were nothing but kind to us when our game was cancelled. Lets show them that same level of respect...
