Microsoft have been sitting on their hands in terms of Age of Empires IV news, all we have had to go off of is one trailer. So when will more news be released?
Apparently fresh news isn't that far away at all. According to an interview with PCGamesN, Adam Isgreen, the Age of Empires Creative Director was asked a question regarding AoE4 and when more news will be released. Isgreen replied and said "I'm happy to tell you that we're going to start talking about Age of Empires IV later this year."
He continued and explained that Gamescom and XO are two events that Microsoft have announcement in the pipeline for. "As you know, there are two major events right now - Gamescom and XO - that Microsoft always does stuff for. So one or the other, maybe? I can't be specific, but suffice to say that we've got Gamescom coming up, and then XO later this year in London, so at the latest, you'll hear more about Age of Empires IV by XO."
So we can expect to hear some fresh Age of Empires IV news by November this year, as that is when XO is being held. Exact dates for the show haven't been announced as of yet, but nonetheless its still refreshing to know that we could get a brand new trailer for AoE IV, and at the very least some new news.
