Ultima IV: The Dawn of Virtue is canceled.
The Ultima IV: The Dawn of Virtue project was started in 2001. After nearly three years of communication with Electronic Arts Inc. to seek legal permission for the project, they have told me they cannot grant it. Therefore, Ultima IV: The Dawn of Virtue is canceled and the project is closed.
I am extremely disappointed with this turn of events. Ultima IV: The Dawn of Virtue was a project I was very passionate about and on which I had worked arduously.
