No there isn’t an Age of Empires movie in the making
Users searching for Age of Empires content in the Windows Store have recently begun stumbling across a listing for an Age of Empires movie soundtrack. Unfortunately this isn’t a leaked listing for a soundtrack to an upcoming movie based on the popular video game franchise, instead it’s simply the official soundtrack to the new Age of Empires: Definitive Edition game that’s due out in October this year.
While the image of the album simply says ‘Original Soundtrack,’ it’s the text title, ‘Age of Empires (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) (Definitive Edition),’ that’s causing the confusion. For obvious reasons. It’s also listed within the ‘Film’ category which makes the whole thing even more confusing as there is in fact a ‘Games’ category for video game soundtracks in the Windows Store.
