Richard Garriot Still Loves His Ultima

Just a quickie about GameDaily's fairly candid interview with Lord British hisself. The sometime space voyager mostly shares about his thoughts on the upcoming Tabula Rasa closure. He seems saddened but not devastated; perhaps that's because the old boy's seen plenty of his games suffer in the past, or perhaps it's endemic of how TR was never what it should have been.

The bombshell, such as it is, comes at the interview's close, where he says he would gladly work on a new Ultima game for EA given the chance: "I think that if, by hook or by crook, I had access to that property, either in solo-player or multiplayer, I would absolutely love to continue to play in the Ultima universe." EA has this nasty habit of jealously guarding its old franchises yet doing nothing with 'em, but lately we've heard rumours of new Syndicate and Dungeon Keeper titles. Maybe now there is a chance the Avatar will get to lock horns with that big red guy again after all...
