Considering the recent IPs acquisitions, how could be the future for AoE4 and the Franchise?
Well you probably did hear by now the news, MS did buy quite a lot of IPs.
We have now Empire Earth, Lords of the Realm, Lords of Magic: Legends of Urak, Ground Control, World in Conflict, Dark Reign, NetStorm: Islands At War, Empires: Dawn of the Modern World, Star Trek: Armada, Warcraft and Starcraft. And probably way more RTS IPs.
So what does it mean for AoE4 and other possible games from MS-Relic cooperation?
Will MS let Relic make sequels for all of them?
I can quite imagine Warcraft 4 by Relic, if Microsoft lets them first make Age of mythology 2.
Or why not Starcraft 3, after let Relic make Rise of Nations 2 and Empire Earth 4 ?
