Ultima Online Producer Chris Rabideau has posted a letter to the community in the UO Herald, informing the citizens of Britannia that the Ultima Online team will be moving from their offices in San Francisco to the EA Mythic studios in Fairfax, Virginia.
Citizens of Britannia,
I wanted to share with you a significant change that is about to take place with the UO development team. Over the next several months, we'll be moving the team from its current location at EA's headquarters outside of San Francisco, CA to the EA Mythic studios in Fairfax, VA.
So what does this mean to you? This is a big move for the team, but we expect it to have very little impact on the game and community in the short term. Planned development and operations will continue with minimal interruption.
In the long term, we believe this move will be a big win for UO and will allow us to better support the game as we move into its second decade of operation. By having all three MMO teams together here in Virginia, we'll be better able to focus on Ultima Online’s development and ensure a long and lively future for the game.
