Microsoft capped off its Age of Empires live stream today with two surprise announcements. In addition to a brand-new installment in the beloved RTS series, the publisher revealed that “definitive” versions of Age of Empires and Age of Empires III are also on the way.
Like the upcoming Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, the acclaimed titles are also being remastered in order to modernize them. While Microsoft didn’t share any release date or gameplay details for either game, the titles will presumably receive the same kinds of changes and updates being made to the first Age of Empires.
