After the almost quiet 2020 of Age of Empires 4, we received a piece of news about a strategy game. The sequel is playable and is currently undergoing a lot of debugging and tweaking.
“I don’t want to make you jealous, but we literally play this game every day in both Washington and Vancouver,” wrote Shannon Loftis, general manager of World Edge Studios, in a year-end review. I will. “Developing RTS is interesting. It takes time to build separate systems (AI, economy, shims, rendering, etc.) and it takes time for them to come together. But then suddenly the game is complete. It’s a game that needs to be rendered, balanced, and polished, but it’s the core of the game we know to ship. “
The long-awaited next main line, Age of Empires, was announced in 2017. In 2019, Tantalus Media and Forgotten Realms announced World Edge as the studio that manages the definitive edition and handles the future of medieval games within Microsoft. This is the most important news ever since.
Given that the Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition was released and the Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition received some major updates, fans of the series barely wanted it in 2020. Shannon said the move from office to home wasn’t easy as the pandemic continued, but the launch window wasn’t mentioned, but the game is still going well.
The 2019 gameplay trailers are:
