The majority of Age of Empires players will be used to experiencing strategy games like this on the PC, but when Stevivor spoke with Microsoft's Shannon Loftis and Adam Isgreen at X019 last week, they didn't rule out the possibility of console gamers getting Age of Empires IV.

"It's hard, as a PC game," Loftis said. "We want to make it great on PC. But then, I think the whole concept of platform is about to change with Xbox."

"We are working hard to make sure to visualize all the different ways that people are going to want to experience Age [of Empires]. But our number one priority is to make it work great with keyboard and mouse."

"We're going to explore our options," Isgreen added. "Once we have our wonderful PC game, then we'll start looking at other ways that we can show up."

We also found out earlier this month that microtransactions won't be in Age of Empires IV, and the X019 event gave us a full reveal of the newest entry in the strategy series.
