Age of Empires 4 Could See A Console Release

Age of Empires is one of the biggest RTS games around. It’s a very popular franchise and the fourth installment is available now for PC. Age of Empires 4 also launched on day one on Xbox Game Pass for PC.

Age of Empires 4 is a major first-party game for Microsoft. Due to the gap between console and PC closing, we have more scope for previous PC-only games on the console. Civilization 6 is available on all console systems and we have the Tropico games. Even Microsoft Flight Simulator is available on the console. But what about the Age of Empires series fans have asked. That is a franchise primary seen on PC.

The reasons why a Age of Empires 4 console release makes sense

The fan base is evident. On official trailers and Tweets, fans have asked multiple times for a console release. This proves the demand is there. It also makes the serious more accessible. Add a Game Pass release introduces it to gamers who may have never played an Age of Empires game or even an RTS in their lives. Expanding the player base is surely a positive step.

They also could be good news for those on the console waiting for news of a console port. As apparently the developers are thinking about a console release.

How a console port could happen

In an interview with Multiplayer.it, a glimmer of hope was provided. The creative director of World’s Edge got asked about a console release. Adam Isgreen wants to get a fully successful PC launch before focusing on a potential console release. They want to explore avenues to get the game working on a console with Xbox consoles expected to be the priority. His response to the question was as follows.

We are thinking of you. As soon as we’re done managing the launch of the game on PC, we’ll start thinking about how to make it work on consoles. We don’t have any definitive plans yet, but it is now that we will start to really think about it.

As we said it is a franchise that’s been on the console before. Thus was the PlayStation 2 version of Age of Empires 2. However, at the time it had issues. It was plagued with complaints about graphics and controls. We also know the franchise works on consoles with the Halo Wars franchise. And they managed to bring Microsoft Flight Simulator to console successfully.
