Age of Empires: Definitive Edition release date

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition was slated to be released in October, on the Windows Store. Unfortunately, it looks like the game’s developers have postponed the launch to next year, bad news that was made public on the Age of Empires website last week.

Age of Empires’ developers carefully debated the game’s release

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition is a remaster of the classic RTS game from 1997. The developer team explained that before deciding to delay the game’s release date, they had lots of debates over the extent of restoration they should undertake.

Their opinion is that such as classic deserves to be treated with enhanced care and reverence with the goal of  modernizing the game while at the same time preserving the “fun, discovery, and magic of that first experience.”

Join the closed beta of Age of Empires

While users are waiting, a thousand more players will soon be able to join the closed beta, something that should help developers improve the game before its launch next year.

The team of developers stated that their current plan involves actively engaging with every user who included in the closed beta with the goal of collecting more feedback, setting up multiplayer sessions and making sure that the Age of Empires: Definitive Edition that will finally be delivered to gamers next year will indeed be the ultimate game that everyone’s waiting for.

Age of Empires had its very own event at Gamescom this year at which Microsoft announced Age of Empires 4 and the remastered versions of Age of Empires 2 and 3.

Unfortunately, a final release date for either one of these versions hasn’t been set yet, but we will probably get more details about them only in 2018.
