this is from an ASK SANDY just posted today:

13) If an Age of Empires was made that repeated Age of Empires 1 time period, would you consider it a step backwards?
A – Age of Empires was released 10 years ago. I think the world might, by now, be ready for another strategy game based in ancient times.


Here are some other questions that have to do with the next project:


27) Is the modern soldier in the collector’s edition an indication that the next Age of Empires game will be based in the 20th century?
A – well one logical progression would be from Age 3 to a 20th century game. The artists wanted to pique people’s interest and in case we go back to the ancient times again it won’t be the end of the world.

16) For Age of Empires IV (if there is another one), would you want to step forward to WWI or step backwards?
A – much as I love reading about WWI, I doubt strongly that anyone would want to play a game based on it.

7) Is ES capable of designing 2 entirely different games at the same time
A – we’re doing it right now, and neither team seems to show signs of stress. This is a first for ES by the way.

4) Are you excited about the project? when it might be announced?
A – I am very excited about the project. It might turn out to be the most fun project I’ve done since HYPERSPEED (my last most-fun project, though sadly not terrific sales). I have no idea when it will be announced.

Well, I for one have been waiting for new good RTS game about the ancient times ever since they released AoE1. I certainly give this project my full blessings.

I give my blessings to *ANY* ES game; I don't think they've messed up yet. Well, maybe once *coughs*Halo Wars*coughs*. Frankly, I don't care what time period it's in. Sure, it would be nice to play the best WWI/WWII/Modern game in the market, but ancient times are exciting as well. I sure hope this wasn't an April Fool's joke by Sandy. :-) By the way, anyone have a link to this "Ask Sandy" place?

I'd prefer a step back to be honest.
When I get Age of Empires I always expect to be playing cool Empires of the past rather than cool Empires(?) from 100 years ago.
A step back to swords and shields would be a nice change for me.

Well seeing that they are developing Halo Wars (RTS), and there's another game in the works that's most probably going to be a MMORPG (maybe MMORTS?!). And since Halo Wars isn't set in the ancient times, I guess the MMORPG will?

To be honest, I stopped checking the Ask Sandy threads once I realised that all the questions were based on balance! Well hopefully we'll have more people asking dearest Sandy about the mysterious second project

It's much to early in the generation to create a game about WW1 or WW2, at least wait another half century or so. It's part of respecting those involved or who had a first hand experience in either event. It's similar to how Americans would never want a game to revolve around the current affairs in the middle east and 9/11.

I look forward to what ever they put out as their next PC RTS, I'm sure they'll go in the right direction no matter what. It's certainly nice to know that they have already begun at least brainstorming and creating ideas for the next installment. Hopefully we'll see it around or before the Fall of 2009.

The Dawn of Man Expansion is an unofficial expansion pack that is currently under construction for Age of Empires and Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome. It is being constructed by members of Tribulation Designs, an Age of Empires design team.

The project began when Rasteve (link to AoEH needed) announced that he had discovered a method by which additional ages could be unlocked inside AoE’s Interfac.drs file. Since then, a large number of members of the AoE community have jumped aboard the project.

i found this on wikipedia!!!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_of_Empires_series


I copy and pasted all the info and put it on the ASK SANDY thread to see what his reaction would be.

If they came out with these 2 new games, would they also make it so that you have to pay to play multiplayer for Age Of Empires 3? If so, when do they expect to release these games?

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*Head pops off and into a trash can*
My kind of luck.

It could be either aoe4, remake of aoe1 or aoe2, or a completely new game.

Remake AOE original -- The first game to be recreated logically if remakes were being done

Remake AOE 2 -- Not a logical place to start

AOE 4 -- Not a popular time period for many gamers (I believe)

AOE 5 -- Not a logical next step

AOM 2/AOM Remake -- Sandy said at some point that it is more likely that they will make another Age of Empires Game

Most Likely: AOE Original Remake !!!!!!!!!!!

Thunder, if you don't want the people to read too much in what Sandy says, then please explain to us what is going on out there. We don't know what is going on in your little cramped offices The only thing we can do is take what Sandy says and speculate about it.

I sincerely hope this is true. But as Thunder says, we could be reading too much into it. Or he could be trying to throw us of the scent.

I hope it's a AOM2. This game could nicely replace AOE1.

Leave it to thunder to try and fool us. *shakes fist at Thunder* Sandy made it too obvious. Be nice, Thunder. Pretty please.

I don't think it's AoE 4... it might be the MMORPG for which they've been hiring for several years now...

I also remember a comment from either Sandy or Bruce Shelley (last year) that said the next RTS wouldn't be AoE 4... unfortunately I don't have the source, so I might just be mixing things up.

Sandy said this. He said it was more likely they would remake another game than do AOE 4, but was more likely they would do AOE 4 than start another series.

I personally hope they don't make another ancient themed game yet, because it'd combat 0 A.D. directly.

I'd rather another AOM or WW1/WW2 game. Just as long as the series never goes past the 1940s...
