Microsoft has just announced Age of Empires 4 during Gamescom. It has been 12 years since Age of Empires 3 has come out. There had been rumours before but since the downfall of developer Ensemble Studios, which was responsible for the original series, nothing was heard after that. We are all pleasantly surprised.
Not much is yet known about Age of Empires 4. The game, however, will be made exclusively for Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system. Relic Entertainment is the new developer for the game. You know Relic Entertainment from the Dawn of War series and Company of Heroes. There was no information regarding the era Age of Empires 4 will take place in.
A release date has not yet been given, but at least we can look forward to a brand new Age of Empires 4 in the future. We will keep you updated when more info is released!
Furthermore, a 4k-version of Age of Empires 1 was announced last year and will be released this October 19th. Microsoft has now also announced 4k versions of the two sequels.
