Maybe, if they did it well. But I am not impressed by the little art.

And Ultime really need Garriot, he made every game so far (and not just UO, I started play Ultima IV on Amiga). Sure he messed up TR but nobody is perfect.

Well TR still had it's diamonds worth noting.

If Garriot was on board and most of the team were new faces not from other MMORPGs that's out now I'd be excited.

But if even a MapleStory janitor was involved count me out.

Most MMO teams seem corrupted from the start now by reusing the same ol' tired faces and lame ideas.

UO2 would have to be REAL special. But wasn't there talk of this .. 4 years or so ago? And 7 or so years ago? A good decade ago?


Will develop an original MMORPG title for money.

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

Maybe if SWToR makes EA a billion dollars they might rezz UO2...

I can see them following it's success with another MMORPG, especially a fantasy one.

Until then, nah, not happening. EA have too much invested in, and resting on, SWToR for anything else to be started. Maybe you will see a UO2 in, what, 7 years or so?

Sadly, those are 2001 sketches / renders. Just google the names and you'll soon find that they were all origin employees back in 2001. UO probably won't ever be remade for at least another five years or so, but if it is ever re-created, don't expect the sandbox freeform world that made the original so great.

Unless Richard Garriott was behind it, no thanks.  EA sucks at everything which include destroying quality IPs and Developers!

 

Besides Lord British recently said he was working on a new Social Game with the vein of Ultima Online, so I'd rather get my hopes up for that instead!

Don't give us stories. Give us worlds and we will make our own stories.

I'd be all over a UO2, IF they kept the basic design in the spirit of UO.

this might be a good thing, if it didnt have two words that doomed it from the start "Social Game". Social Games suck, period. If Garriott wanted to get himself back on top, he'd make another niche game like UO was back in 1997-2000.

Right now, he is just trying to accomodate the lowest common denominator, the facebook gamer, in an attempt to relive his old glory days when people actually respected him. With each facebook game he makes, he looses another chunk of his credibility amongst quality gamers everywhere.

The truth about Garriott right now, hes gun shy. After getting anal raped by EA with UO and the Ultima games, then having NCSoft flip him over and go in for seconds, he doesnt have the mettle to take another chance and make a real MMO. So, he plays it safe making kiddie games for Facebook and its snot nosed punk ass owners.

Face it people, Garriott doesnt have the stones anymore. Don't count on him making anything good ever again. Ultima was his crowning achievement, in the gaming world that is. Unless he can either reclaim UO and the Ultima Series and restore them to their former glory, or make another MMO that is just as good as old UO was, he's going to fade away into obscurity to only be remembered as "That guy who made UO".

yeah no other dev is able to pull that off - definetly need raph koster. But i fear that the sandbox idea is dead - at least in the eyes if investors and SWOTOR will only make that worse. I doubt we will se a world sandbox game anytime soon. And so i think UO 2 is just a rumor.

I know all the Shallow Hals will be all over this for the dated graphics but this was the shiznitz trailer when it was launched back in 01.

P.S. Because I know it will come up. The music is the Grimm Fairies.

There is CCPs "World of darkness online", it have good budget and competent devs. If it sells OK it will open up for games like UO2 again.

The idea isn't dead, but sandboxes need to change from UO into something that have the potential of getting more players. If anyone can do that it is CCP. I believe that sandbox games will have a second comming (sorry, MO and DFO have too few players to be called that, and even Eve) but it will just like the first comming have to start with a good and different game.

Just copying UO with modern graphics would fail miserably, what made UO a great game from the start was that it made stuff noone had before and that it tried to bring pen and paper RPGs into a online computer game. Not that it copied a already good game.

Why do you want UO2 when you have Mortal Online? Support that "project" first !

Id rather support the original UO than Mortal. That statement was completely ridiculous.

As long as EA is making Ultima it will be shit!

 

When Richard Garriot sold Ultima to EA it went to shit, they impemented all the new style MMO garbage and the game went to hell... The origional Ultima kicked ass, it was unique and didn't care what others were doing. it stuck to its guns and thats why thousands upon thousands played.

 

If they make ultima 2 and it has all the AOS properties, etc ltima will be forever dead; except on free shards.

Although MO has come along a long way, I don't believe SV has the required talent to be a UO2. By the time they can complete MO, we'll all be living in spaceships travelling through the galaxy
