Although a sequel isn’t in development, BioWare states that fans should “never say never” when it comes to returning to the Jade Empire universe.
Yeah, right after you squeeze every bit of life out of Mass Effect. that could be another 5 years. One of my favorite games of PS2 and OG Xbox era don't play with my emotions Bioware.
It would get all EAified. Pointless multiplayer, preorder skins and weapons and all the other bollocks that comes with today's gaming.
Didn't stop Inquisition from being amazing.
Microsoft owns the IP...
EA owns Bioware, I do not think it would be a good idea for them to bring it back.
I think MS owns the ip for Jade empire
Showan: Actually Bioware owns the IP. Microsoft at most owns the rights to the first game. Much as why it took so long for the PS3 to get ME1
This would be the second kick at the can if this actually happens because Jade Empire 2 was already in development going back about....6-7yrs ago. I saw it with my own 2 eyes and even played what little I could get into. I was highly disappointed when it was cancelled.
How did you get to play it?!
I was lucky enough to know someone on the inside. Was out visiting and got to see what they were working on. Like it was REALLLY early. Not even alpha stage. Very little in the way of any major definition or texture. I even know the "timeframe" of when it was set...(hint) it wasn't set during the same era as the first one... I was able to get enough sense as to the tone and what they were looking to accomplish as far as the early combat system.
Ah you lucky sod! Well here's hoping we might see a sequel. I have to revisit Jade Empire because I hardly got to play the first one but loved what i did.
I like your pic :]
One of the best action RPGs I've ever played. Too bad they cancelled the second game.
Yeah, I would love a new Jade Empire, the first one was amazing. One of my favorite games of that era. I still play it on my PC sometimes.
I want this, but worry that story will suck because they had to do online modes and battle packs dor extra money. Love this game, but worry EA will screw it up.
Bring that awesome game home , where it belongs and started out at . X b o x
Exclusivity is the last thing that matters but if it stayed on Xbox cool. What does matter is if Bioware today could match or surpass the Bioware of back then... I highly doubt it.
I love JE... I had it on the OG Xbox, and bought it again (digitally) when MS had is Xbox Originals on the 360.
this would make me get a new system
This is an April Fools joke, right? I lost hope of seeing a new Jade Empire ages ago.
I wish it was legit. Only this time make choosing the different characters actually matter in the story.
Jade Empire was such an amazing game. I remember playing it as a young kid on my Xbox, and it's a game that has stuck with me till this day. I would love to see it revived along with a new KOTOR which is my absolute favorite game of all time.
Jade Empire is the best one of their series and has high franchise potential. Don't be stupid, remaster the first alongside a sequel and it would force XB1 into consumer hands.
Oh man this would be fantastic! I've been waiting for a sequel forever but I'm going to be realistic... The Bioware of today is nowhere near the legendary Bioware of back then. I'm not saying it's impossible, but if today's Bioware succeeded, then they're redeemed. Otherwise it's just another nail on the coffin of their lost greatness. I'm not interested in oriental fetch quest galore and grand areas suddenly becoming dead and soulless.
