Age of Empires: World Domination might still be released for Windows Phone

A previously announced Windows Phone version of the real-time strategy game Age of Empires: World Domination might still happen. That's according to a statement sent to Windows Central from the game's developer Klab.

Here's a recap: In 2014, Microsoft and Klab announced Age of Empires: World Domination for iOS, Android and Windows Phone, which would be based on Microsoft's popular PC game series. While the game was due for release in that year, Klab later announced it would delay its release until sometime in 2015. It went entirely silent on the game's development progress until December, when it launched for iOS and Android in several markets, but not for Windows Phone.

After several attempts to contact Klab went unanswered, the developer finally reached Windows Central with an email response to our question on if Age of Empires: World Domination is still coming to Windows Phone:

"Regarding your concern, please be informed that Age of Empires : World Domination is currently supported for Android OS and iOS only. However, the support for WindowsPhone/WindowsOS is being considered. Regarding this matter, we are not able to send notifications individually. Once we have additional OS supported, it will be announced in the SNS site/ Web site etc. Your understanding is appreciated."

While that's not a 100% "yes" answer, we are encouraged by the fact that Klab is, at least, considering a Windows Phone version. Would you still like to see Age of Empires World Domination appear on Windows Phone? Let us know in the comments!
