Lord British/EA UO2 Follow-up

IndustryGamers has quotes from Electronic Arts casting doubt on recent comments from Richard 'Lord British' Garriott about his discussions with EA over regaining access to the Ultima property, and the possibility his next game could ultimately become Ultima Online 2. Perhaps this just falls under the heading of the "resistance" some EA execs have to working with him: "I'm not sure what Richard Garriott is referring to. But no one at EA is discussing partnership or licensing opportunities related to the Ultima Online franchise," Jeff Brown, EA's head of corporate communications, told them.

"its 100% remake of Dungeon Master if you ask me"

Uhh, Wizardry was made in 1980! DM was made in the mid 80's. There is only one other game that was before Wizardry that started this view perspective, but I forgot the name (Had a small blue castle with a light gray background, Apple ][) Even Alternate Reality was before Dungeon Master, and AR is far ahead of both games in terms of content.

Lord British BLEW IT giving the rights away to Ultima, what a friggin tool. When will people learn to never give the rights away to the very thing they created? Most of us never make anything that goes commercial, and those that do squander it a few years later. So short sighted.
