Is the thing in the middle a crashed satellite or something? Was expecting a moon-gate but that looks like it has a dish on it.

No as in MP linked to social networks - that's what he's been really interested in the last couple years. So think Farmville more than PnP role-playing.

Also there's a chance it might be something along the lines of Ultima Online 2, which he has mentioned possibly doing in the past and discussing with EA. Unfortunately he's also said in the past that he's not really interested in single player games anymore and has pretty much felt that way since before ultima 9 finished.

Except he didn't want to keep doing single player RPGs - his interest has been MMOs and social games. So even if he kept making Ultima games and building on what he had with ultima 7 back in the day, it might not have been in any direction approaching something that would compete with a massive single player RPG directly.
