Is EA Working On A New Ultima Title?

EA has issued cease and desist orders to fan sites that host flash versions of Ultima IV. A publisher requesting a smaller site to remove copyrighted content isn't surprising, but what is out of the ordinary is these fan sites have been hosting Ultima IV for 14 years without issue. The shocking requests for removal is sparking many to believe EA is gearing up to announce a new Ultima game.

Earlier this week we discovered EA was looking into hiring a "web ninja" to work on their a new, unannounced and revolutionary MMO. Then BioWare Mythic creative director Paul Barnett tweeted about a "secret project."

Ultima is a series of fantasy RPGs created by Richard Garriot. EA currently hold the rights to the series. The last game to be released in the franchise was Ultima Online: Stygian Abyss which came out in 2009 but the last game in the main series, Ultima IX: Ascension, came out in 1999.

Do you think EA is working on a new Ultima game? Are you even interested in more Ultima?
