Earlier this year, Microsoft announced it will launch Age of Empires: World Domination for iOS, Android and Windows Phone — yes, the company’s own operating system wasn’t left out this time. The game was expected to hit mobile platforms by summer’s end, but it didn’t happen. Now, the company has announced via the official website that Age of Empires: World Domination for all mobile platforms is now delayed until 2015.
They didn’t give out an exact launch date, except the vague “2015 release” which could be any time next year. They mentioned the late release will allow the company to deliver a “robust Age of Empires mobile experience” for all the new and existing game fans.
I used to be huge Age of Empires II fan, but later moved to other strategy games. The launch of mobile version got me excited, but it’s definitely a disappointing news for me, and i’m sure for other Age of Empires fans as well. I’m really hoping the company will be able to deliver the game before people lose interest in it.
The company announced officially about the delay on their website and mentioned:
While we have come a long way in our development with this ambitious mobile game, we came to the conclusion that an earlier release would sacrifice quality. A 2015 release will allow us to give you a robust Age of Empires mobile experience for fans both old and new to the franchise. We are extremely grateful for all your feedback we’ve received so far, and look forward to hearing more as we continue to share exciting development updates with you. Thank you for your continued support and stay tuned!
This is definitely a disappointing news, but lets hope the developers will be able to deliver something extraordinary, and will not disappoint Age of Empires fans.Further reading: Age of Empires, Gaming, Microsoft, Windows Phone
