Point of Origin: Vol. II, No. 16 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Issue size on the rise, Wing Commander on the decline... May 8, 1992 brings us a big fat Point of Origin that only mentions Wing Commander twice! At this point in the year the company is devoted to supporting the (then) system intensive Ultima VII and Underworld products while trying to get Strike Commander finished. The first signs that Privateer is in the works show up, here, too!

A very special thanks to Joe Garrity of the Origin Museum for making this resource available and to Electronic Arts for sending them to him in the first place!

  • On the Payroll wins the award for being the first to mention Privateer: "On the programming side, Alex Jen has joined the Trade Commander/Privateer team. Originally from Taiwan, Alex was also an assistant in acoustics research at U.T."
  • Mais, Oui! reports on an event to help cement Origin's new presence in France. It ends with a joke about Wing Commander: "Jean-Marc and our new French translator, Betty, will be on hand to convert words like 'Kilrathi' and 'furball.'"
