BioWare Teases Potential Sequel for Jade Empire


BioWare may be returning to their classic action RPG Jade Empire sometime in the near future, if the words from some of the studio bosses are anything to go by.

Speaking with Game Informer, Bioware’s Creative Director Mike Laidlaw said that “Jade as a sequel is never dead.”

“There are a lot of people still at the studio who worked on that game and want to get back to it,” BioWare’s General Manager Aaryn Flynn added.

“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.”
