Microsoft has announced there’s a new Age of Empires title in the works. It’s called Age of Empires IV, and it’s currently being developed by Canada’s Relic Entertainment.
This is the first new Age of Empires title since 2011, when Age of Empires Online was released. Before that it was Age of Empires III, released in 2005.
This video shows the gorgeous and compelling announcement trailer for Age of Empires IV. But sadly that’s all the information we have right now.
We don’t know when Age of Empires IV is going to be released, what period of time it’s going to be set in, or anything about the gameplay mechanics.
