Could Jade Empire 2 happen? EA trademark sparks speculation.

Jade Empire is one of the most celebrated BioWare games ever created. It's so popular that it keeps on getting new versions even to this day. For example, a few years ago Jade Empire launched on iOS as a special edition. Last year, the backward compatible version was even upgraded to 4K resolution for Xbox One X and looks better than ever.

Recently, we reported that EA may be preventing BioWare from making another Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic game. However, the company might have a trick up its sleeve. Today, numerous reports surfaced that the publisher trademarked Jade Empire again. While this is a common practice which allows companies to make sure only they can use the name, it could also mean that there is a sequel or potentially a remaster in the works. It could also mean that the team plans on launching the game on another platform.

From the team behind Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic comes Jade Empire, an action role-playing game set in a vibrant, living breathing world. Are you the hero who will save the Jade Empire or are you destined to leave a trail of death and destruction in your wake? Through a rich and engaging story, you'll interact with the captivating world by speaking with a wealth of characters and engaging monsters and enemies in battle. Magic and martial arts come together in thrilling real-time combat on your quest to become the hero the empire needs or the villain that will bring pain and suffering to its people.

How do you feel about this news? Did you play Jade Empire back in the day? Let us know. If you haven't experienced this cult classic, you can currently pick it up on Xbox One for $9.99.
