Microsoft have confirmed that their popular title ‘Age of Empires’ will be coming to mobile devices soon. The game, which will be released for iOS and Android devices, is in development by a Japanese company called KLab. The current scheduled release date is before the end of March 2014.
It seems a bit strange that Microsoft would allow a game to be developed for devices competing with their own Windows 8 phones – or perhaps this is a way of stretching the reach of the Xbox brand across multiple devices? It will be interesting to see if any other Microsoft franchises make their way to iOS or Android devices – will we see a portable version of Halo any time soon?
