We've really enjoyed our time with Age of Empires 4 so far, but the big downside is that you can't play it on Xbox. There have been many calls over the years to bring the series to console, but for now it remains PC exclusive.
However, some fans think they might have spotted evidence of an upcoming Xbox version. Twitter user Aggiornamenti Lumia, who scans the Microsoft Store for unreleased information, has uncovered an apparent January 2022 build of the game being internally tested as part of the Xbox Insider Preview program:
While this would appear to be hinting at an Xbox version in the works, it's worth pointing out that the Xbox Insider Hub is also accessible on PC, so there are no guarantees. Regardless, fans are certainly getting their hopes up!
Even if this doesn't turn out to be anything particularly exciting, it sounds like Age of Empires 4 will be coming to Xbox eventually. The development team highlighted late last year that they would "start thinking about how to make the game run on consoles" following the PC launch, so it seems it's just a matter of time.
Are you hoping to see Age of Empires 4 on Xbox in 2022? Let us know down in the comments below.
They ported Gears Tactics and Microsoft Flight Sim after initially releasing on PC first. I think it is fair to assume that Age of Empires IV will come to xbox in 2022. One can only hope 😁
Even if just with keyboard and mouse support this would be great.
Though controller remapping would be a bonus, and touch controls/UI scaling for mobile/cloud an added boon.
Age of Empires coming to Xbox consoles would be a gigantic step towards PC and Xbox console parity. If it happens (both 4 and the remasters) the main things left would be Halo Spartan Strike for Xbox consoles, Halo 5 for PC, Rare Replay for PC and some solution to backwards compatibility.
I would definitely be up for playing this on my Series X. C’mon Microsoft...make it happen!
Yes please! Hoping this happens.
If this has M&K, it's exactly what we needed to have 2 player matches.
Hmm, I have played this on pc and it was really good. I can imagine it being a bit fiddly on controller though.
Please please please make this happen.
I have never played and AoE game and really want to try this one.
