At Gamescom 2019 in Germany, Twinfinite talked with Creative Director Adam Isgreen, and he explained that not all hope is lost for fans of the franchise on Xbox One.

While Microsoft doesn’t have a specific announcement for a console version, Isgreen plans to try to “figure it out” after the PC Version is released. 

“So, the plan is that I want to make the best PC RTS possible first. Now there’s mouse and keyboard support on Xbox, but so many people don’t have mouse and keyboard that they can plug in.

So, I think the challenge, and what I want to fool around with afterwards, is… once we get this done, we’re gonna look at what we can do for console controls, like building a console control scheme specifically for Age of Empires.

We don’t have anything to announce about console right now, but we’re going to go try to figure it out. “

We recently learned that Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition  will release on November 14 for PC.

Incidentally, we also heard that Age of Empire IV is very likely to be revealed in November at XO19 in London.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
