Het is twee jaar geleden dat Microsoft, Age of Empires vier aankondigde op de Gamescom. Daarna hebben we niets meer van de game gehoord ook niet op de E3. Fans maakten zich zorgen over Age of Empires 4, maar Microsoft heeft in een interview met PC Gamer, ons weten geruststellen.
Xbox-baas Phil Spencer heeft het volgende gezegd over Age of Empires 4 en de progressie van ontwikkelaar Relic:
So it was cool for us to be able to have a such a full show, and have some things like Age 4 that have been announced but haven’t been shown in a while, other things that maybe aren’t announced, to still be able to have those continue to drive excitement both through the year and potentially even next year’s E3. But we’ll talk more about Age 4, yeah
The thing I would say is, we’ve been incredibly impressed by Relic’s capability. Obviously they’re somewhat local to us being in Vancouver, and we know the studio. They did the best job of, ‘here’s what we think Age should go to’. And the other thing I’ll say is, we are learning a lot revisiting Age 1 and Age 2. As those communities grow again, as those communities continue to exist, they have large player bases, and there’s a lot of feedback. So we’re getting good insight
