    It was clone anyway!  All the same now.  But putting more effort into the Dead Horse called UO isn't the best move either.

    I hate you EA............Earth & Beyond cancelled, UXO cancelled, the sims online cancelled <yes ,it will very soon, sorry sim fans>

    Lord British just left UO 1 year ago? Are you talking about Richard or Lord British here? I've played UO for 3 years and I never once saw Lord British. In fact I've only ever seen like two events. That's an important part they lacked. They needed more events.

    They made a business decision, and if you look at their stock, you'll see how continued "sound business decisions" keep them churning out great titles. It's sad to see another mmorpg get cancelled, but (and I apologize to the UO fans) this gives EA more resources to devote to other, more viable games.



    In business, its not what did you do for me 5-10 years ago, it is what have you done for me lately. What has EA done lately? I can assure you it is nothing to jump up and down about. In the gaming industry it is all about trust and if you make a promises and continue to brake those promises then you start to lose that trust factor realy fast. If people don't trust your company they aren't going to risk spending 50-60 bucks on a game they aren't sure they can trust in. EA may just need to stick to what they are good at, sports games.

    Game looked promising (especially the combat system), but god forbid there be a new innovative combat system game and it actually make it out of the beta phase before being cancelled. They plan to "merge" UXO with UO... yeah right. We all saw Blackthorn's Revenge, that was a piece of crap "merging" of UO2 with UO.
     



    Actually, he's cut all ties with the Ultima franchise. And since UXO got canned, we may quite possibly never see another new Ultima game again.

    Yea Tabula Rasa is RG + Destination Games's new project. Its looking really good so far, i'd check out the E3 trailer and interview.

    This isn't a forum about new games, it's about a game that just went down the drain after so much hard work. Take that elsewhere.

    Back to EA, I miss when Origin was still around. I miss OSI and all those bastard counselors. ::::21::
    But as for UX:O, this game was great. I like Ascension, but it wasn't as great as UO. UO2 would have been freaken sweet if it wasn't in 3d.

    I'm pretty bummed about UXO being cancelled. I mean they took it pretty far, releasing videos, races, classes. It looked pretty damn sweet to me. I was going to buy it if EQ2 didnt work out, but i guess they pulled a smart moving, backing out before their game got crushed by EQ2 and WoW.

    Oh well, we still love UO because, well, you just have to love UO.::::22::

    Too bad this is canceled.  I was anticipating this game more than most of the others coming out soon.  image
  • SkaelSkael Member Posts: 115

    I think someone should come up with a eulogy for UXO, and possibly the entire Ultima series. I doubt any more Ultima games will be coming out now.

    I remember UO2 stratics was still up months after UO2 was cancelled, and people submitted eulogies and monumental images and stuff. image It was so saaaad. image

    Interestingly enough, I have never heard of UO2. I played UO for 3 years, but I've never heard of UO2. When was it supposed to come out? When I took a leap of absence from the forums and all games? That was like 7 months long. I never knew about a UO2!

    Most people just referred to Ultima Worlds Online: Origin as UO2. At least, the people I talked to and the websites I visited.

    Oh, I'm not very familiar with that name either. I may have heard it in game once or twice but not so much, Was it going to be 3d? If it was I don't want to hear anymore. It couldn't have the same great in game experience as UO. ::::07::

    No games for me yet. Not until I see "the one." I don't think it will be rolling around anytime soon. Hehe. I'm not holding my breath.

    I'd keep an eye on Tabula Rasa.. the almighty Richard Garriott is making it, and a lot of the devs were part of the UO2 team.

    I downloaded the E3 trailer today, it looks really nice so far. It comes out in November, and EQ2/WoW come out in October, so I bet most of the annoying people will be in those games and not TR.

    I'm too lazy to quote but I thought I'd answer a few things that some people brought up.

    Firstly, it is not a smart business decision to put as much money as they did into a game, have about 9-12 months from release and just can it.  It is a waste of money and resources...not only do you have to put out money but you tie up devs in making the game when they could be put elsewhere.  They did the same thing with UO2.  The problem is EA has soooo much money that they don't feel the hit they take.  They make it up easily in UO sales.

    Lord British is Richard Garriot's alter ego...no he didn't play Lord British, at least not that I know of...but if someone refers to Lord British in a non-UO sense they are prob referring to Richard Garriot...he himself thinks of himself has Lord British on occassion.  He said as much in the latest Tabula Rasa interview in fact...I believe.  lol

    UO2 was in the making a long long time ago.  Back before AC1 I believe...I can't really remember the whole timeframe for it.  It had VERY good graphics for the time...if it were released today the graphics would still be very good.  They would have to raise the resolution a bit but that is all.  hehe.  It was fully 3D and it had a unique fighting style...all the animations were made by an actual martial artist in a suit so they all looked very real.  The fighting style was very intense and fluid.  The game features were unique and the world was completely original.  It was a mix of the old UO world taking place in a pseudo-industrial age.  There was a really cool video I'm still trying to track down with a character break dancing and the movie also showed off some of the better fighting scenes but I can't find it anymore.

    Someone said UXO was going to be a clone?  uh...that is far from the truth as most of the UXO ideas weren't ever in UO.  Just to answer that one.  :P

    Anyway, I'm sad that this game got canned and I think it was another mistake by EA.  I believe it would have done rather well despite the competition and certainly would have made back all the money they put into making it and would easily have enough to keep going month to month.

    Sorry if there are dup posts.

    Garriot did GM in the old days of UO as Lord British. He talked to people and took part in quests and stuff, if I heard correctly from like everyone I knew during UO:R.

    I read that UO2 was conceived 6 months after UO was released, by the way.

    "HomeLAN - Ultimately, what was the main reason for the decision to cancel the game?

    Aaron Cohen - We decided to focus our resources in Ultima Online. The enthusiastic response to the Ultima Online 7th Anniversary Edition and the upcoming expansion pack convinced us to devote all our energy and resources to that game and that community. "
