I wish EA would do something with Ultima, they could give it to freaking Bioware to make something interesting out of (since Bioware handle their RPG and MMO division) hell even something to go up against the Elder Scrolls but goodness knows if they will or not. EA make weird business decisions.

Please no, Bioware games have the same kind of comfort food vibe as Star Wars or a Big Mac. That doesn't make them bad by any measure, but they're totally different to Ultima. They're about as different as you can get while still being in the same genre. Give Bioware an Ultima game and it'll turn out like this:

"Greetings Lord British, I am the Avatar!"
"Salutations Avatar, have you finished the introductory sequence?"
"Yes, my liege."
"Excellent, now you are ready to go to four different places and return to me the widgets therein, before embarking on The Final Battle."
"At once my lord, shall I make moral choices along the way?"
"If you must, it won't make any difference to what happens."
"What of my companions, Iolo, Shamino and Dupre?"
"I'm afraid I've given them the boot. Instead you shall be provided with a bitchy Ice Queen, a man tormented by a Tragic Past, a naive girl and a homicidal comedy sidekick."
