Microsoft has just debuted the second definitive edition for the Age of Empires series, Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition. So when are we going to get the third definitive edition?
The release of Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition just happened, and if you are an Age fan then I highly recommend you picking up the game as its fantastic. I've personally been pumping hours into the title, and I can't express how much I've been enjoying reliving my childhood in HD graphics.
So now that we have Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition, when are we going to get the third game? According to a recent rumor by FairyEmpire, who reportedly had a conversation with some Microsoft developers at XO19, Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition is planned for launch sometime through mid-2020. If this rumor is true, it will line up with the other rumor of Age of Empires IV being launched the following year.
This release date would make sense, as back in August, we received the first Age of Empires Definitive Edition, and now we just got Age 2 Definitive Edition. Microsoft is most likely going to plan the release of the third game for sometime next-year to tie gamers over until the big launch of Age of Empires IV, which could be in the following year.
