Anyways, I thought it was common knowledge.
Richard even put references to EA, their much hated publisher, in their games.
Remember Elizabeth and Abraham, the murderers who worked for the Guardian in Ultima 7? Also, the evil Guardian's sphere, cube, and tetrahedron formed EA's logo.
EA had filed a frivolous lawsuit against Origin, costing them a bundle.
After EA aquired Origin Systems, Richard blamed them for the early release and poor reception of Ultima VIII and Ultima IX. It must've been hard losing his company and IPs to EA, but I think he's come to terms with it in recent years… He even approached EA about doing another game, but they wouldn't bite.
