Finally , Age of Empires IV has been announced by Microsoft. It has been a long time coming since the last version released by Microsoft which was in 2005. Now being a pc gamer, I was a big fan of the franchise and had the complete Age Of Empires Series, funny that, I still have the complete box set which included Age Of Empires III, The War Chiefs and The Asian Dynasties.
The Age of Empires series has sold over 20 million copies. The game was successful due to historical themes and giving players a level playing field.
I recall a year ago Bill Gates conducted an AMA on Reddit where users asked him the about the new the Age Of Empires, Bill Gates response was "I will look into this. How many empires do you need?" Who would have thought, that the new Age Of Empires IV trailer got released by Windows on YouTube, a year after Bill Gate's response.
