Ultima Online’s latest producer letter teases their Publish 109 update for July, in addition to hinting at the team’s next project.

First up, Publish 109 is set to release worldwide sometime in July. New to this update include tool upgrades, and new rewards for future seasons like Halloween. The team is also looking forward to the game’s 23rd anniversary, and more.

The post then hints at what’s next for the team,

“Once we release Publish 109 we will be full steam ahead on our next project - we know you are excited to know what we have in store for Ultima Online and we are excited to share it with you!  Keep an eye out for this big announcement!”

Additionally, the post touches on Game Masters, and specifically how they’re not meant to “act as a taxi.” The team reminds us that GMs are not responsible to move you if you get stuck in a dungeon or the like.

Finally, the Treasures of Tokuno event will be ending with the 20th Anniversary Invasion reactivating on May 12. You can still turn in any minor artifacts you have for the Imperial Minister of Trade, however, so you don’t need to worry about losing those.
