The chances of seeing a sequel to Bioware’s hit action RPG Jade Empire are better than we may have thought.
Bioware’s Creative Director Mike Laidlaw said of the would be project “Jade as a sequel is never dead”.
General Manager Aaryn Flynn went on to add:
“There are a lot of people still at the studio who worked on that game and want to get back to it,” said BioWare GM Aaryn Flynn. “I think one of the advantages to getting back to it after a long time is not only nostalgia is a very powerful feeling in people, but skipping a generation of hardware is actually really exciting because it feels like it’s not an evolution. It’s a revolution of what you can do, and I think that’s the kind of thing that brings people. What if we were to revolutionize Jade Empire and brought it back in that regard? That’s the kind of talk that still happens around the studio.”
While it all sounds well and good, concrete news on the sequel is still nonexistent, but at least we can’t count a Jade Empire 2 out just yet.
