More EA Madness Update ID

Staying true to form, EA have been waving their big axe around. As we know, they've previously cancelled Privateer Online followed shortly by Ultima Online 2 (I refuse to use it's later name) and probably other projects I've forgotten or we don't even know about along with job losses all around. Well now they're at it again. This time the axe falls on Multiplayer BattleTech 3025 and EA Platinum which includes Air warrior, Silent Death Online, Triple Play Baseball, and Tiger Woods PGA Tour Web Golf. So what is there left to cancel? As far as we know, Earth & Beyond (the game they cancelled Privateer Online for) is still going as is the original Ultima Online but has EA lost faith in games only playable online? Given EA's recent performance, they may be about to rethink their strategy.. and if so, let's hope that they still remember the success (and profit!) that Wing Commander brought them.

Universe Map Origins Revealed in "Wing 5" Progression Map

Here's a peek at an interesting prototype of the Wing Commander Universe Map included with Wing Commander Prophecy. We first caught a glimpse of this during our 2012 trip to the University of Texas archive. While the final map detailed many sectors where most of the main events happened in the series, this appears to be a little snippet that just traces through the events of WCP. (2018-07-18)
