BioWare Co-Founder Wishes Jade Empire was a Launch Title for 360

BioWare Co-Founder Greg Zeschuk wishes he could have made Jade Empire a launch title. It’s one of the things the Zeschuk thinks he should have done differently. 

Jade Empire was originally released in April of 2005, if Bioware would have waited a few more months, and polished the title up. It would have been better for the game and Bioware.

“I think making Jade Empire a 360 launch title would have been massive,” he said when asked about regrets he may have had about BioWare. “That’s a really specific example, but we made a choice, and there are a lot of factors that go into these choices and you can’t revisit them. But it’s interesting, because it reminds me of what’s going on right now with analysts saying that game sales are down because people are waiting for new consoles, and we released Jade Empire into that kind of window. In retrospect, it would’ve been great to put off a bit and polish the game a bit more.”

“We never really had a true launch title right at the beginning, and that would’ve been fun to have done that once. Mass Effect 1 was in a launch window but ended up kind of being about nine months later or something. It would’ve been cool to have a game at launch because it could have changed a lot of dynamics.”

I have to agree with Greg here. I ended up playing the game years after it came out on XBLA. However, as a launch title for the Xbox 360, it would have been really cool. I’m not sure how many people would got to experience it on the Xbox 360 because the install base was low, and the Red Ring of Death was claiming 360’s everywhere at launch.
