Takahashi: Jade Empire 2 is coming

by JW

BioWare is currently working on a sequel to their 2005 Xbox smash Jade Empire, according to Dean Takahashi. Apparently Takahashi has talked with someone who has seen code for Jade Empire 2, and from what his source has told him it will be heading to the Xbox 360. I wish there was more information to this story, but that’s what Takahashi is working on: A guy who says he saw some game code.

Regardless of Takahashi’s questionable taste as far as his personal gaming preferences go, when it comes down to it Dean Takahashi is still one of the most respected, trusted names in the industry and if he trusts this source about Jade Empire 2, then I’m going to believe him. However, my excitement will remain tempered until we get an official announcement.

What do you all think about the news, and do you think this will wind up as a Xbox 360 exclusive, or will the recent acquisition of BioWare by EA mean spreading the Jade Empire love?
