I wish EA would do us all a favor and just stick to sports games. Let good companies pick up the fun non-sports games and MMORPGs. I got excited about UO2. *splat* I got very excited about UXO. *splat* And their reasoning to drop it according to the official press release? To focus more on UO and some future product. Um... hello? Wasn't UXO a future product? Wasn't there a large fan base just waiting to buy it? And with all due respect to those that like UO... BLECH! I don't know how they can still be making money from that franchise. To each their own I guess.
After pulling this stunt on top of the other stupid moves I say EA can just take a flying leap.
Richard Garriot is rolling over in his grave.
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.
an other one bites the dust,
there are just way to many mmorpg being develloped at the moment, companies can't make profit when they go gold, Dnl WoW, EQ2, DE, FoM to name a few big ones that are coming out this year or next.
One day all will die, surely you but never I.
"One day all will die, surely you but never I." Wheel of Time
EA is a big fat bunch of liers.They insured everyone that UXO would be fine after they closed down Origin and relocated a lot of the staff.Now once again we see what EA stands for.
First they cancelled UO 2.And now they do it UXO.
What the heck is wrong with those suits over at EA?Did they director got hes thief nerfed in Ultima Online and now this is how he takes revenge twice by pissing off the players who followed UXO for years.
A huge company like EA should have the money to take a little risk once in a while.Or atleast they should have the balls to atleast be honest from the start.
I should have forseen this coming, and here I thought UXO would be the next MMO that I fully got into. Oh well, I'm trying out the Asheron's Call 2 trial so I'll tinker with that for a little while as I make plans for my next move.
Man i hate EA and havent bought anything from them for a while, i was looking forward to UXO and i guess they didnt see any money coming in so they junked another game in there great fashion for doing so. hope a company with some guts and insight will pick it up and roll with whats done so far.
Originally posted by Aguitha What else can be said ? EA sucks ! Worst game company. How many games they have cancelled ? Stick to sport game and leave the mmorpg world alone ! I'll never buy a EA game ever. DAMN that game was looking so promising
what a hypocrite most of you are, look at the guy above. He says EA sucks and the game they were developing was looking so promosing in the same paragraph.
Face it just because you few noobs wanted to play UOX doesnt mean EA should finish making it just for you noobs. THey know EQII is the shit, they know most MMORPG fans will go to EQII, they know they will loose money, they are doing the right thing by canning the game. There is no point making a game that won't make money.
EA makes good games but their support is fucking horrible. Patches take forever and so do answers to important questions. EA would never survive with an MMORPG they have no customer service. C&C Generals was such a kick ass game but they left it full of bugs for so long most people got fed up and quit. Same with the expansion it was great but had bugs and I quit before we ever saw a patch, takes them too damn long.
NHL 2004, great game but I had to wait months and months for an official roster update. With an MMORPG this would never fly and EA knows they dont give a shit about their customers once they have boughted the game so they see why they cannot have a popular MMO.
I didn't know UX:O didn't have any in game support! That wouldn't work at all! And Azron is right to say that EA was right to cancel UX:O because the other competition. I agree.サ ー ス ベ ン
Its a very sad day:(
No UXO wasnt as big as EQ2 or WoW but at one point it had a huge community with amazing devs. UXO had the bests setup of the three games, and I think as a member on the MMO community this is a sad day for us all. UXO would have give us a new way to look at mmos.

intel sucks even with their 3.6

Whoa there fella's, EA sucks? What about Battlefiled 1942? The Sims? Medal of Honor? The whole LotR series? And just about every sports game worth playing?
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.
LOL! Ever notice how noob is an insult? It simply implys that we know less than you...which obviously isn't the case seeing I didn't need to try EQ to know how badly it sucked (and EQ2 will not be any better). SOE has never made a good game either. I am looking forward to WoW because it will be the first MMORPG to be released from a company that has good customer relations (a MUST in an MMORPG).
lol. exactly. the only "newb" is the one that calls the other a newb.
I know, it's so pointless! It's aggrivating too. Unless they attack you it gets fun. You can show them a piece of your mind.
I guess that now there is no Ultima X: Odyssey, there should be no Ultima X: Odyssey forum section on MMORPG.com.
