That sucks. I thought they did a great job with AOE3, even if the hardcore fans thought otherwise.

Time has kinda caught up with them IMO. I do think that they've been outmatched in the recent years by others, for example Relic Entertainment has proved a supreme player in the RTS genre while Age of Mythology was just old whine in a new bottle. Hell AoM was even outmatched by C&C: Generals IMO. And Rise of Nation/Legend, Dawn of War, Company of Heroes.. those are the RTS of the future. As a major Halo fan I can't do anything but look foward to Halo Wars in anticipation, but my expectations are not very high..

Yea let's hope they can make an even better crew. I really love AOE3 and have always liked games by them. Maybe they'll mix with some of the devs from FSX or Halo. :captnkill:

I hope there will be an AOE4, but I want Rise of Nations 2 more, but I doubt they are going to develope it.

They could, they still have the rights to those.

AoE and C&C are the only RTS games I play, so of course I hope for more down the line... One can't help but wonder if this "restructuring" is related to MS' focus on consoles now.

Either way, in any form, I look forward to another AoE.
