EA has denied claims made by Richard Garriott that both parties are in talks to work on further titles in the classic Ultima property.

Speaking to IndustryGamers, EA's Jeff Brown stated: "No one at EA is discussing partnership or licensing opportunities related to the Ultima Online franchise."

This differs from Garriott's previous statement that they are in serious discussion, claiming: "We've had discussions at very high levels with Electronic Arts about access to the property. We're in discussions with Electronic Arts even now about a possible marketing and distribution relationships and things of this nature."

In the meantime Garriott is working with new studio Portalarium which specialises in social games, having recently announced their first Facebook title Ultimate Collector: Garage Sale.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

While both sides seem to be in complete disagreement over the future of the franchise, it seems highly unlikely we won't be seeing further Ultima titles in the future.

I'm a HUGE fan of Garriott's, although he's had nothing but bad luck since Origin got sold to EA. I must say though fan or not, it's not enough to make me log back onto Facebook to play his new game. Not a fan of Facebook, not a fan AT ALL. Wonder if he'll ever go back to making single player titles...
