Age of Empires Summary
There are doings afoot over at Microsoft's Redmond campus as they want a senior games developer to join their team who are working on "an established and well-loved" strategy franchise. It's a AAA project.
No Windows Phone exclusive nonsense presumably, and PC might be getting some Microsoft love after all. Age of Empires is Microsoft's strategy flagship series.
Microsoft Game Studios has just announced that Robot Entertainment is developing Age of Empires Online, with beta signups now going live.
This was the project thought of as 'Spartan'. AOE Online gives us a "persistent online capitol city" that we can grow and nurture while conquering.
