Microsoft is planning something big for strategy fans, even if it hasn’t told us exactly what that is. An avid job hunter has spotted a “help wanted” ad for Microsoft Studios, promising work on a “well-loved strategy game franchise”.
Microsoft Studios is looking for a highly experienced senior games developer to help build and lead the team for a new AAA title within an established and well-loved strategy game franchise.
Microsoft is well known for making all sorts of games, but its strategy library isn’t the most well-stocked. This has lead many fans to breathlessly wonder if the studio is in fact working on a new title in the Age of Empires franchise, which certainly meets both the “established” and “well-loved” criteria.
It seems like a fine time to dust off the skill trees and get back to a previous age… that is, unless Microsoft has somewhere picked up the rights to another big name strategy title…?
