That's the page I was thinking of. I guess I just took it to mean Ultima since it started off talking about WoU.

I haven't heard anything about Serpent Isle selling poorly actually. I could see it selling less, but it was still considered a core Ultima and was popular (unlike the WoUs), and with it based on UVII's technology it probably cost a lot more to produce.
That's sort of what I was getting at. Essentially, I remember Garriott saying it cost more to produce than Black Gate (not sure why that would exactly) and didn't sell quite as well as Black Gate, so it didn't make sense to do it again.
