Back in March, Bioware brought up the possibility of releasing a new Jade Empire title, which has maintained a following since its release in 2009 on the Xbox then later the PC. The developer has once again teased the possibility of a Jade Empire 2.

During a panel at the Eurogamer Expo 2011 in London, BioWare co-founders Drs. Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk responded to a question from the audience regarding the Jade Empire IP.

"We've been talking a lot about that actually on and off over the years," Muzyka stated, repeating much of what was said back in March, "It's an IP, it's a setting that we're really passionate about, and we still are. Both Greg and I were big believers in the IP. We're just looking for the right way to deploy it."

"We have a lot of different projects now on a lot of different platforms, and you might see some of that (Jade Empire) in the future. You never know," Muzyka then added, "We don't have anything to announce on it right now. but it is a franchise that's near and dear to us."

Bioware's latest major project, Star Wars: The Old Republic, was dated by the developer for December.

I would absolutely love a sequel to Jade Empire. It was something I was not expecting at all, but thoroughly enjoyed :D Just please, oh please, don't go down the simplified DA2 route if you make this one, Bioware >_< (And I'm pretty sure Jade Empire came out in 2005, not 2009, lol)

Bioware's been teasing Jade Empire 2 for the last 2 years, tho. It's frustrating.

Bought but never played the Jade Empire - it started the trend that KOTOR and later ME made solid...
A Jade Empire 2 could be interesting I guess - but BioWare no longer make games that makes me excited...

True, Bioware used to mean a guaranteed great game but now they are slowly turning into just a regular company that can screw up from time to time.

So they're not the divine messenger of god, they're still one of my favourite developers by far.

But if they make JE 2 a console exclusive, I WILL see blood.

No company is that SirRoderick - but it is like Dante's trip into hell - there are circles and in certain circles, even the bad guys don't want to go... ;)
