Love explosion in my pants! Oh, if you don't love Jade Empire, go to hell ----- A small but interesting scoop: Jade Empire 2 is coming By Dean Takahashi Saturday, December 29th, 2007 at 12:00 pm in Dean Takahashi, Dean and Nooch on Gaming, General. Heres an opportunity for BioWare to get it right and for all of you fans out there to rejoice. Rumors have been swirling about the possibility of a sequel to BioWares Xbox hit, Jade Empire. For years, people have predicted it would come and Ray Muzyka, co-CEO of BioWare, even spilled the beans of something coming back in 2005. But I talked with someone who saw code for Jade Empire 2. Its coming for the Xbox 360, and its real. Its not much as far as scoops go, but Im on vacation. What do you expect? Happy New Year.Jade Empire was BioWares second big game for the Xbox, following the exclusive Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic title in 2003. It will be interesting to see if Jade Empire 2 will remain an exclusive for the Xbox 360, now that Electronic Arts has agreed to acquire BioWare/Pandemic. Jade Empire launched in spring 2005 on the Xbox. That means the team that created it has probably had a couple of years to work on it. During that time, I would guess that Microsoft secured it as an exclusive and they developed the game for that platform. But there is no law that says such games cant be ported to the PS 3. And we all know how EA loves to do cross-platform games to maximize profits from a single property. The original game was an action role-playing game with core martial-arts fighting game play. You play an orphan who is trained in martial arts and on whose shoulders lies the fate of the mystical Asian land, the Jade Empire. The possibilities for the sequel are very interesting given where BioWare took the conversation and RPG system with Mass Effect. Would this be the Xbox 360s answer to Heavenly Sword on the PlayStation 3? Probably not, given it is an RPG and not a fighting game first. Whats your vote? Should it remain an Xbox 360 title or should it go cross platform? I dont know the answer myself.
