Age of Empires 4 was announced a while back, and… nothing. Literally, that’s it. We haven’t heard anything about the game since the initial announcement, so much so that those who are wondering if the game might not have secretly gotten canceled behind the scenes (it wouldn’t be the first Microsoft game this generation to suffer that fate) aren’t out of order.
But now, that may be about to change. In an official update on the series’ website, Age of Empires community manager Jennifer Godwin confirmed that Age of Empires will have a segment on the next episode of Inside Xbox, Microsoft’s webseries to share regular updates with fans. Now, to be specific, she doesn’t say Age of Empires 4, but what else could it mean?
As for what the news could be? We could get our first look at gameplay footage, we could get a release date, a demo, a beta, or maybe even the announcement of an Xbox version (remember, it was announced as a PC exclusive). Whatever it is, I hope it is good news.
