Age of Mythology May Soon Return

In addition to news on the Age of Empires series, Microsoft's yesterday presentation also brought hope that its spin-off, Age of Mithology, may soon return.

The main point of yesterday's streaming was Age of Empires IV - the game's release date was revealed, along with many details from the game and extensive gameplay. In a series of questions to the developers, fans also asked about the mythological spin-off of the historical RTS, namely Age of Mythology. The enthusiastic response of the devs may suggest that this will be their next title.

Adam Isgreen, creative director of Microsoft-owned studio World's Edge, assured all concerned that the question of developing the Age of Mythology franchise returns to the developers time and time again:

"None of us here at World’s Edge have forgotten about Age of Mythology… I don’t think anyone at Relic has even forgotten about Age of Mythology, because it comes up all the time. So I will say the thing I used to say all the time, which is just stay tuned, we have not forgotten about it… We love the franchise. We’re not, like, pretending it’s not there. We know."

Michael Mann, the series' producer, also reacted in a similar way. Neither he nor Isgreen, however, suggested what we can expect - whether it will be another, after Tale of the Dragon, expansion for Age of Mythology: Extended Edition released in 2014, or perhaps - as in the case of the three installment of Age of Empires, which lived to see Definitive Edition releases - an improved and remastered version of the game. At this point it seems to me that we can only dream about a full-fledged second part.
