Ultima Worlds Online: Origin cancelled

Electronic Arts announces the termination of development on the sequel to the massively multiplayer role-playing game Ultima Online.


Electronic Arts and Origin Systems have announced the cancellation of Ultima Worlds Online: Origin, the game previously known as Ultima Online 2.

Origin Systems will release Ultima Online: Third Dawn next week. Third Dawn is an enhanced version of Ultima Online that will add several new features to the original game, including new lands and creatures.
