I was bored and was checking out news on upcoming games and saw that Ultima X has been canned. They say its so they can concentrate more on UO. This really suprised me as this was the second time they did something like this, I remember them canning UO2 after it was already several years in production. As a fan of the original Ultima series and Ultima Online (at least for the first few years), I was kinda curious as to what they would do with this title. In any case I just think its sad that such a prestigious series can't seem to end on a high note. :(http://www.eagames.com/redesign/games/pccd/uxo/home.jsp?ncc=1

Actually I'm pretty sure that was the reason. Ironically that was the same reason UO2 got canned. In the oversaturated market of MMORPG's its be innovative or flop. I didn't see all that much innovation with U:X and it had changed enough to where the loyal Ultima fanbase may hae moved on to some degree.
