Age of Empires is enjoying a resurgence, with new definitive edition releases for older games, expansions for those releases, and, of course, Age of Empires 4, which is coming up soon. Recently at the Age of Empires fan event, Microsoft provided tons of new details on the upcoming strategy game, while also showing a healthy amount of new gameplay footage. But, of course, while historical real time strategy experiences are the bread and butter of the series, it’s also been known to dabble with mythology in the past.

Age of Mythology released back in 2002, a spinoff of the main series that took its fundamental structure and mechanics and applied that to a Greek mythology setting with fantastic results. And World’s Edge, the Microsoft first party studio that is now in charge of Age of Empires, wants you to know that they haven’t forgotten about AoE’s mythology-infused offspring.

Speaking in a roundtable discussion before the recent fan event, franchise creative director Adam Isgreen said that they “haven’t forgotten” about Age of Mythology. “I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again: I have not forgotten about Age of Mythology,” he said (via PC Gamer). “It comes up all the time.

“Stay tuned. We have not forgotten about it. I love Age of Mythology. I love mythology in general. We love the franchise. We’re not pretending it’s not there or anything like that. We know.”

Meanwhile, senior executive producer Michael Mann added: “Absolutely we know. We’re listening. We’re 100 percent listening on that request.”

Given how excellent Age of Mythology was and how dear it is to millions of fans, a revival of the property would be quite exciting. Whether that entails a brand new game, a definitive edition re-release like Age of Empires has seen multiple times of late, or perhaps an entirely new expansion- that much remains to be seen. Microsoft did release a new expansion for Age of Mythology back in 2016, so maybe more support like that could be on its way.

Meanwhile, there’s plenty other upcoming stuff for series fans to look forward to. In addition to Age of Empires 4, which launches this Fall, Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition and Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition are also getting new expansions and updates soon.
