Age of Mythology is a popular strategy game that launched in 2002. You take command of various Egyptian, Greek, and Norse deities and have to build your civilizations from the ground up. The game is a lot like Age of Empires, except there are a lot of supernatural abilities involved. I loved it even more than Age of Empires because of the lore. Unfortunately, we haven't had a proper sequel, but that may be about to change.
Age of Empires Creative Director Adam Isgreen said that the company wouldn't leave Age of Mythology behind. He said the following in an interview with Eurogamer.
It's unclear if Isgreen means that the game will get a sequel or a proper remaster. Either ways, we can't wait to find out after Age of Empires 4 launches. What do you want from the franchise? Let us know.
