At least from what I've seen, even though, you could easily compete with her in your handsome looking suits. :o 8-)

Why should they pick our history? Pick the history of Westeros and we are set to go!

The only thing that is revealed, is that it is not going to be settled in the future.

I don't speak german and Google Translation didn't work so well for me on that website. Could you summarize what was said about the period in which the game will be set?

Shannon Loftis from Microsoft said (short version in my own words): There is still plenty of human history (or history of humans). I think we should first talk about that and tell that (human history), before we think about what's coming next.

Not perfect, but I hope it helps.

First all the releases that MS has made lately involving the AoE franchise have been an utterly disaster , and the support very bad (2 or 3 U$5k tournaments sponsorship is a bad joke) , second Relic and DOW 3 was nothing but a disaster too, lets just wait and see if after almost 2 decades they can pull something at least good, so far the only Publisher close to the old RTS gameplay with a modern game has been Blizzard, and still they had to relaunch a SC:BW "HD" or Remastered.

I'm trying to translate all of the quotations of Shannon Loftis und Adam Isgreen, but not the whole article:

Why now?
"We never forgot about Age of Empires. We have worked with Forgotten Empires since 7 years. The popularity of RTS may have decreased in general over time, but there was always a group of hardcore fans at Microsoft, who wanted to revive Age."
"Since 5 years we are advertising our idea internal to whoever we need for the project. In fact the decision is quite simple: If you watch the passion of Age-players on steam and that there are still people playing Age of Empires 1 on CD from 1997, then it's a no-brainer."

Time period?
"There's plenty of human history left. I think, we should first speak and tell storys about that, bevor we think, what's beyond that."

Developer?
"Relic is the best game developer company for RTS in the world"

Release time?
"We work for quite some time on Age of Empires 4. I can't tell specific times, but we are not on the first day. We have not just begun."

XBOX One version?
"We are concentrating on the PC. This is the heart of RTS. But you should never say never..."
