I think they've gone for a more realistic approach to the design (in using Ralph McQuarrie's original concept) because it does look evolved but keeps the characteristics that makes it a formidable starfighter.

In real world terms, this is basically the F/A-18 Hornet becoming the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.
