    Cancelled BioWare project Revolver shown in concept art

    A near-future successor to Jade Empire.

    Previously-unseen concept art from cancelled BioWare project Revolver has been posted online by artist Matt Rhodes.

    Revolver, a spiritual successor to Jade Empire, was never officially announced. Bits and pieces about it surfaced over the years, before BioWare finally went into detail on the game in its recent 25th anniversary book.

    Set in the near-future, the project was designed to spread BioWare's trademark narrative and character-driven efforts across a more open-world and action-heavy setting. Huh, sounds familiar.

    Frankly, given Bioware's track record in the past few years, I'm almost glad it got cancelled. It could only have been a disappointment.

    Is BioWare even still relevant? I feel like after ME3, which was almost a decade ago, their company was basically over. The leaders abandoned ship. They're constantly changing people in major positions within the company, which in effect means that they can't bring projects from original vision to realization. There's pointless arguing between their different offices. They can't manage their funds properly and EA is constantly breathing down their necks even when things should be going right. The way I see it, BioWare's golden era ended a long time ago.
