Could there be Age of Mythology 2 after AoE4? Microsoft is apparently planning to take care of their Age of Mythology games series.
I found an interesting article.
Microsoft is apparently planning to take care of their Age of Mythology games series in the future. If anything, Adam Isgreen being Creative Director for Age of Empires at Microsoft saying so must surely mean it. However, this will only be done post current plans for the Age of Empires franchise, as Adam Isgreen said that they’ll devote time to Age of Mythology “after we get through the Definitive Editions for the three here, and [Age of Empires] 4 is kind of rolling”.
Age of Mythology takes a pretty creative look at mythology (which could be seen as a creative source material in and of itself), but that’s part of what makes the game fun. It has already been treated to an Age of Mythology: Extended Edition back in 2014, so we’ll have to wait on whether Microsoft is planning of releasing a Definitive Edition of the game, or a full-blown sequel altogether.
I do find it quite interesting. Age of Mythology remastered kind of makes not lot sense between AoE3 and AoE4, even less after AOE4.
So the only logical step, would be actually to make a sequel to Age of Mythology. Just think of all the possibilities, of a game developed on full functional engine, big budget and experienced team.
While AoE4 task is quite hard, Age of Mythology 2 would have there great advantages, as it could toy around with a lot mechanics, that makes for a historical not so much sense. Just think of the unit variety with all the monsters and magic. What do you think?
