A few years ago, Microsoft announced Age of Empires IV for Windows 10. Unfortunately, we haven't heard much about the game since then. However, it seems like that's about to change. According to a post by famed insider "shinobi602" on Twitter, there's a countdown timer on the Age of Empires IV page which probably ends when X019 begins.
X019 is Microsoft's yearly celebration of gaming, and it takes place in London this year. A lot of new titles are expected to be announced, maybe even the latest projects from Compulsion Games and Obsidian Entertainment. However, only time will tell. Hopefully, Age of Empires IV will get some gameplay footage and a release date.
What do you think the announcement will be? Let us know. Are you excited for Age of Empires IV as we are?
