Ultima Online Creator Richard Garriott Teases A New Game

Richard Garriott, a.k.a. Lord British, is best known for his work on the Ultima series of classic RPGs, including Ultima Online. His last endeavor was Tabula Rasa, an MMORPG that failed spectacularly and shut down not too long after its launch. Since then, Garriott’s been busy spending time in space (really!).

Garriott is back in the game industry with a completely new project he plans to unveil within the week. Going by his old moniker Lord British, Garriott launched a website called “Lord British Presents” with a live timer that’s counting down the days before he makes the announcement of what his next game is to be.

It’s anyone’s guess as to what the secret project entails, but you can sign up for a subscription to the newsletter on the site to receive the heads up the moment the announcement goes live.

Wouldn’t it be cool if it was a deep RPG where your decisions made a real impact on the story and/or the game world? And if the characters were unique and interesting? And the gameplay was well thought out, balanced and engrossing? Hmm..come to think of it, Ultima DID have a time machine, so just maybe..

“While your avatar’s journey in Britannia may have come to an end, Lord British and his team, many of whom have shared in the creation of these games for many many years, have begun work on a new adventure for you. It will be delivered on mobile and social platforms as well as traditional PC platforms. The genesis of the new world will begin small, and grow with player participation and input. We look forward to sharing more details with you as they develop. Come join us in creation of the next Ultimate RPG!”
