Perfect World Entertainment has decided that it will be going back to the drawing board with one of its newest titles.
The studio announced today that it will be ceasing current development of World of Jade Dynasty, a sandbox wuxia title that started pre-alpha testing last June. The publisher didn’t pull the plug because it was displeased with the game, but rather because it wanted to give its visuals an upgrade.
World of Jade Dynasty will be getting “redeveloped” using Unreal Engine 4 rather than an in-house engine. Obviously this decision will delay the game’s testing and release, although there is no word how long it will be until we’ll see this title again.
