Redemption began under the lead of Avatus. Problems arose when he left; the team lost motivation and the project was heading for a fall. In September 2004, however, Corv from Ultima - The New King offered to join forces, and the two teams merged to form the Titans of Ether.
After 12 years in development, the Titans of Ether also gave up on Ultima 9: Redemption and cancelled the project in December 2016.
The soundtrack [Spotify | YouTube] for Ultima 9: Redemption, composed in 2006-2008 by Matti Paalanen while the project was in the hands of the Titans of Ether, has survived.
