Seven years later Bioware has yet to open up about Jade Empire 2

It’s been almost a year since Bioware hinted on the possibility of revisiting the world of Jade Empire: “Don’t count out the studio revisiting this franchise in the not-too-distant future…” That was in February of 2010, Bio-Ware has keep quiet since. Fans of the RPG have been patently waiting for a follow-up to the 2005 game of the year for the original XBox, how long will you have them wait Bio-Ware? (Jade Empire, Jade Empire 2, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Jade Empire was/is one of their best games. It definitely ranks up there with KotOR and Mass Effect, in my opinion.

I completely agree. I have been wondering about Jade Empire 2 since 2008. I thought IGN confirmed then that Bioware working on Jade Empire 2. Here's the link

Jade Empire is still my favorite BioWare game and my favorite game on Xbox. They NEED to make a sequel
jetlian  +   1860d ago
is their best game by far. only thing is it didn't sell very good. If they were smart they should do a HD remmake of it and kotor or some other games.

Maybe MS should do an XBOX HD collection with fable,jade empire, kotor.
one with halo 1/2 and doom 3
one with otogi 1/2 and ninja gaiden.
And of course splinter cells

It is a amazing RPG i miss it a lot i hope a second one is in development now or sometime in the future its a must. I gotta get the first one again.

It was the first bioware game I got pretty far into, seems like their games are becoming more action oriented with each release. Mass Effect 2 basically plays like Gears of War with towns... I'd expect Jade Empire to turn into Tekken with towns. Thats basically Yakuza I think. Can't go wrong with Bioware storytelling though.
jetlian  +   1860d ago
is straight up fighting nothing like yakuza with towns

just got the limited edition disk for my 360(didnt want to download it). I love it. Great world, storytelling, atmoshere, everything is great. I love how i can play this, kotor 1/2, fable all on my 360. They still look great, kotor not as much but jade empire looks damn good still. Would love a sequal and kotor 3.

Shabla Goo!!!!!!!!!!!!

That was a fun game. Loved the double axed dude and the story was great. Bioware is one of my favorite developers and I hope EA does not screw them up.

How bout Knights of the Old Republic 3? an mmo spin off just wont cut it, considering KOTOR 1 was probably their best game ever
kraze07  +   1861d ago
IDK, isn't saying that TOR is an mmo spin off of KOTOR like saying that WOW is an mmo spin-off of Warcraft? MMO and spin-off just seem like 2 contradicting terms
Nac  +   1861d ago
Thats the thing though
It's not really KotOR. 300 years seperate the story. The galaxy's status may be covered by TOR, but what about the cast of characters from KotOR 1 and 2. It's like releasing The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones but then skipping on to The Empire Strikes Back.

Jade Empire was wonderful. Sometimes I just wonder what is in their minds for not making a sequel.
MatthewMk2  +   1861d ago
Let it die. Jade Empire didn't sell well enough to get a sequel. Bioware is to busy milking Dragon Age and Mass Effect.
christheredhead  +   1861d ago
yah i know. 1 dragon age game and 2 mass effect games. its about time they stopped milking both those franchises. its getting ridiculous.
Mcardle  +   1860d ago
You are obviously disturbed.
guigsy  +   1860d ago
They are obviously concentrating on other franchises right now, but I would love to see another Jade Empire. Definitely one of my favourite games of last gen.
CryWolf  +   1860d ago
Don't care about Jade Empire I want a third Knights Of The Old Republic game, not a stupid MMO that lasts forever.

I'd like both.

I know they lost their DD license but it's time make another Neverwinter Nights. Neverwinter Nights 2 was freaking epic.
Nightshadow  +   1860d ago
BioWare are extremely busy with all their other IP's and also the Star Wars MMO. On top of that you can probably expect further expansions to be released to these titles afterwards, so this doesn't leave much room for the Jade Empire title unfortunately :(

Now that they got more people into their games from Mass Effect and Dragon Age, Jade Empire 2 will be epic. It will easily get a lot of sales that is if they decide to make it.
Rhapsody_  +   1860d ago
jade empire is one of the few bioware games i couldnt finish, can't remember if it was that bad though ...
Octo1  +   1860d ago
This just in. Jade Empire getting HD re-release for the PS3.
Hey. It could happen. After all we are getting Splinter Cell Trilogy and Stranger so I would not file this under never going to happen".
NiteX  +   1860d ago
I enjoyed Jade Empire. I played it twice on PC. The story wasn't the greatest. With your master and all. But I enjoyed the combat and characters, and most of all the world.
Crazay  +   1860d ago
The reason Jade Empire 2 hasn't received the sequel treatment up until now is because the project was axed about 2 years ago. Someone I know was actually working on the game and I even had the opportunity to play in a very very pre-alpha stage.

The title was set far into the future and even housed had a character you all know and love to be Jack from Mass Effect 2. Jack was originally slated to be in JE2 or whatever they were going to call it but after the project was canceled they took some of the assets and moved the over to other games.
