Tabula Rasa - Voodoo Extreme interview “Lord British”

Voodoo Extreme have published part 1 of an interview with Richard “Lord British” Garriott of Ultima and more recently Tabula Rasa fame. He talks about his views on the development of the new MMO in this two page interview, and its a must to check out if you are following the game.

VE3D: I haven’t seen Tabula Rasa since E3. What’s been happening?

Richard Garriott: So just before Christmas break we started with outside beta testers—what we call “friends and family”—[and] we’ve been slowly expanding a few hundred at a time. In the next build, we’re going to be moving up to the point where we’ll be bringing in thousands of people at a time—and pretty soon going to closed beta within a month or so, where we’ll have hopefully tens of thousands…then later in the summer to Open Beta where we have basically anyone who wants to play. So we’re in that final push to launch at this stage. Tabula Rasa will come out this year. We don’t have a public specific date yet, but definitely the light is at the end of the tunnel. We’re tying up the loose ends and polishing it up so we can get it out the door.
