    Developed by Relic Entertainment, which is owned by Sega which is why this is in General Sega Discussion. :v:
     
  2. Fantastic! I just hope it takes cues from the updated Age of Empires II, and not so much from III.

    Disappointingly little information in the trailer, but it feels a bit wacky that a SEGA owned studio could dev an Age of Empires IV.

    Then again, the whole year has been rather wacky.

    I'm in the same boat.

    Would be pretty cool if they took some inspiration from Mythology too.
     
  5. This has, like, absolutely zero potential to be anywhere as good as AoE II.

    I completely agree, but it still has the potential to be a great RTS. I mean, worst case scenario is that the news will get more people buying AoE II on Steam (which has reached 4.3 million owners!)

    Trapped in my own thoughts.
    Two stageplays, a screenplay, and an album
    Personally, I don't need it to be as good as AoE II. I Just need it to be nowhere near as bad as AoE III.

    Sega also did Halo Wars 2 this year.

    Can we all agree that announcements for games with not even a tad of details is annoying as hell?

    If this is following up on time periods, would this be pretty much from 1900+ ?

    Was AoE Sega-related before, or it's just IV?

    And this means this installment was supervised both by M$ and Sega?

    The original team that made Age of Empires, Ensemble Studios, doesn't exist anymore because microsoft shut them down. They also made Halo Wars. Since then, sega has basically conglomerated every RTS company on the planet not named blizzard, and has become the preeminent RTS company. Microsoft hired Sega's Creative Assembly studio to do Halo Wars 2, opening up a rapport between the two companies. This is their follow up project with Microsoft, albeit this time handled by Relic (Sega's other major RTS studio).

    I loved Mythology as a kid. This would be amazing.

    This is out now by the way.
     
  16. ...I believe Age Of Empires: Definitive Edition came out. That is a remaster of the first game, AOE4 is still being developed.

    If it's not out then Microsoft made a mistake somewhere.
