It was one of my favorite RPGs of the last generation, and I've long since wanted a sequel.
It probably won't become a reality any time soon, but it's interesting to know that at least at some point, BioWare was working on Jade Empire 2 . As several sources are reporting, the LinkedIn resume of ex-BioWare lead level designer Rafael Brown cites "Jade Empire 2 (360/PS3/PC)" on his list of "unreleased games." The first title released back in 2005 for the original Xbox and PC and he claims he worked on the follow-up effort between April 2006 and April 2007. Obviously, we never heard anything about that project and today, it seems BioWare has left the Asian-themed RPG behind, pursuing the likes of Mass Effect and Dragon Age . Then again, provided there's enough fan outcry, the developer might still give Jade Empire 2 a go…not that we're holding our breaths.
The loading times were totally insane and the control and camera could be a little wonky, but I still had a ton of fun with the first game. Anybody else?
