Just as fans seem to be busy playing Ensemble Studio’s Age of Empires III, so to do the developers. The artwork found in the game’s Collector’s edition by fans at AOE III Heaven indicate that the company has already worked on, or are planning to work on, the two next sequels!
The issue isn’t the artwork, depicting a 20th-century soldier and a futuristic conception, isn’t the controversy in itself. The issue is whether or not Ensemble Studios is merely teasing its fans, or truly indicating its plans for sequels. Microsoft Game Studios, who published the Age of Empires series, are not confirming anything at the present. “The art found in the book is purely concept art and is not confirmation of future games to come in the Age of Empires franchise,” said a company representative.
