After the shut-down of Origin, Ultima IX became unsupported software (Abandonware) despite the many complaints and unresolved bugs. Therefore, loyal fans of the series tried to address the biggest complaints and issues themselves; the community at Ultima: The Reconstruction released an unofficial patch to fix the inconsistencies within the Ultima IX storyline, bringing the story more, but not completely, in line with the rest of the series.
There have been at least four distinct versions of Ultima IX in development, which have differed in both storyline elements and technological implementation.
In November 2014 the Ultima Codex Community was able to acquire the Ultima 9 source code from a former developer for offline archival to prevent permanent loss.
