UO2 Dead & A New Beginning?

By Steve Gibson, Mar 23, 2001 9:56am PST The big story the other day about UltimaOnline 2 being canned by EA was pretty shocking. GameSpy caught up with Richard Garriot to get his reactions which also includes word that the cancellation comes within 8 days of his own non-compete agreement ending. He may just have a bunch of new employees!

On the other hand, personally, it could be an opportunity in the sense that my non-compete [agreement with EA] runs out here in about 8 days, and I was debating how to hire a team to get back into the business and I know a lot of the best people, a lot of my best friends who were at Origin, were very committed to their team and to their project and to the leadership around them within that company. [...] its going to be interesting for me to go back to Austin and start up discussions with the large stable of close friends who are now looking for something to do...
