Gaming enthusiast in the early 2000s must be familiar with the game called Age of Empires (AOE).

When the third installment AOE launched in 2005, the real downfall of this game is starting to look.

Game Age of Empires (AOE) air-genre of Real Time Strategy (RTS) was first rolled in 1999 and can be said to directly gain success. This game is using a fairly lightweight engine that is in great demand at that time gamer.

Success is also maximized by the manufacturer to issue a number of extensions to the sequel to the game called AOE II. Some manufacturers also buy a license game engine used by AOE sequel to be immersed in the game, such as the Age of Myhtology games and one game Star Wars sequel.

When the third installment AOE launched in 2005, the real downfall of this game is starting to look. The tight competition with other gaming manufacturers are issuing similar games with more interesting gameplay makes AoE III becomes less desirable.

As a result, the entire team of developers AOE sequel was drawn entirely by Microsoft to develop Halo games. Practically, AOE game was practically dead since left by Microsoft in 2005.

Suspended animation for up to 6 years, Microsoft decided to turn this game back in 2011, but this time as an online game. Unfortunately, what is expected is not as expected, because the online games are considered less favored AOE fans at the time.

The game itself also seemed suspended animation, not many people remember it until finally Microsoft decided to bury this game. Yes, AOE finally confirmed to have entered a period since July 1.

Indeed, there is still a chance this game rise, because there may be game developers who buy a license and tried to turn it back on. But for now, fans of the legendary game AOE can only utter the phrase, 'Good-bye Age of Empires'.
