If you haven't heard yet, Microsoft will be reviving Age of Empires 1.
I've worked on this project for over 2 and a half years now, although I've taken several long lengths of time off, so it hasn't been wholly continuous. While it's been fun, I feel there isn't any reason to continue working on this. Age of Empires: Definitive Edition will be launched and a fan project can not compete with that.
Thanks to everyone who followed us and gave us encouragement.
