Age of Empires 1: HD Edition mod development will be halted.

Posted by on

If you haven't heard yet, Microsoft will be reviving Age of Empires 1.

Ageofempires.com

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.

I saw the announcement as well and I wondered about your mod.

We hope you fair well on your future endeavors!

I was also thinking about your mod when I first heard of the remaster. Was hoping you'd continue but understand your reasons.

Take care.

I understand completely. No disagreement with your decision. Perhaps if anything, the success that mods such as yours had is what prompted this decision by Microsoft. Take care!

Personally I think you should finish it, at least for celebrate the news of Microsoft, and as a tribute.

But I understand your decision, I will miss this mod.

What a shame, just started following a few weeks ago. I hope you find a new project that you can take a lot of joy from!

sorry to hear that, but unless microsoft does what you did and update the game on the aoe3 engine, then I think you are short selling yourself and your game would be way better. But in the context of players, I know it would be uber hard to host games of this. I am sure you will continue to do good work on whatever you do though. GG

I think this mod would be better too actually. I like how in AoE3 the units move very fluidly. It would be really hard to host this game that's one problem, but the main problem is everyone who could have helped complete this mod left. Thanks though for the support.

Thank you for have made this mod and for all the efforts that you put on it, I really enjoy it since you had released any patches of this mod!
