let us know (thanks Blues
) that the latest issue of GMR Magazine has the following quote in their June 2003 Issue on Page 21, written by Jeff Green of Computer Gaming World:
"The really exciting news this month should be going public as you read this. For over a year now, Origin has been quietly woodshedding Ultima-X its new MMORPG. And it’s going to surprise you. I can't say anything just yet except maybe three quick words: Unreal Warfare engine. Watch this one. EA surprised everyone when Battlefield 1942 showed up out of nowhere last year. They may do it again."
